ABEOKUTA—THE Ogun West Elders Council, Monday, said it would support any  anointed candidate presented  by Governor Ibikunle Amosun to succeed him after 2019 provided that he or she is from Ogun West.

The elders, who said this at a press conference, in Abeokuta, declared that  the people of Ogun West would only throw their weight behind Amosun’s candidate if the person  is from their axis.

•Amosun: Ogun governor

Chairman of the council, Ajibola Olagbaye said: “The time is now, thanks to the godly man of destiny, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, who has told the world and assured the people of Ogun State and Nigeria that he is going to hand over to a governor from Ogun West.

“The council has not been told or received the anointed candidate of the governor. All candidates are being interacted with and they are all eligible. We know that the Wizkid could be  anybody from   Ogun West.”

Meanwhile, the council has debunked accusations that the council is frustrating the ambition of the district to produce a governor for the state.

Olagbaye, who lamented the inability of the district to produce a governor for the state, since it was created 40 years ago, disclosed that the council would strive to ensure its aim is actualised  in the 2019 governorship election.

His words: “You will recall that among the accusations, which critics regularly level against Ogun West as working against the district in her quest to be at the head of affairs in the state as Chief Executive,  are  lack of unity, lack of a rally point and multiplicity of interests among  interested men and women.

“We have had an occasion to debunk some of these as unfounded and to point out the fact that some of these accusations are not peculiar to Ogun West. In addition, heterogeneity of the various people and communities making up the various people and communities making up the Ogun West Senatorial District is absent in other districts; they include Yewa, Awori, Ketu, Anago, Oogu, Ohori and many others.”
