While promising his backing for any competent person presented by the Osun West, the former governor hinted that he had gauged the feelings of the people of Osun, through reports from his political allies, contending that “out of 27 years of existence of Osun State, the West has only been there (governorship position) for just 22 months. The aspiration of the founding fathers of the state is that no part should be marginalised.
“I don’t mind if I stand alone. I have told my political family to find someone who is competent from the West who can lead the state after the tenure of the governor. I said that is the man I will want you to bring up. And in saying that I have no one in mind,” he said.
