Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said he would support any credible governorship candidate produced by Ogun West Senatorial District in 2019.
Obasanjo made this known while speaking during the burial service for the former Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Pa Adepoju Adeyemi, held at Comprehensive High School, Ayetoro in Yewa North Local Government Area of the state.
He said he would support any credible candidate from the zone due to the fact that it had not produced a governor since the creation of the state 42 years ago.
The former president argued that for a sense of equity and fairness, it should be the turn of the Ogun West Senatorial District to produce the next governor of the state.
“I am going to support a credible governorship candidate from Ogun West Senatorial District. So, I want to appeal to you to look inward and produce a credible candidate, who is tested and trusted and will deliver for the betterment of the state,” he said.
