Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has endorsed the Ogun State governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress, Prince Gboyega Isiaka.
Obasanjo made the endorsement on Saturday when the state ADC leadership formally presented Isiaka and his running mate, Olabisi Okeowo-Bolade, to him at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.
He described him as “good, credible and worthy candidate” to govern the state in 2019.
He sought support for the aspiration of Ogun West Senatorial District, which had not ruled the state since its creation in 1976, adding that for the next election, the zone must be allowed to produce the next governor in the spirit of equity, fairness and justice.
He said: “I am happy that today you are presenting to me a candidate of the party and a candidate who is worthy of being a candidate.
“What do you expect me to say if not to say this is my son in whom I am well pleased.
“He is a man who has ears and he listens.
“When he gets there, he will be grateful.
“You don’t have to leave any stone unturned.
“You may have somebody who is opposed to you.
“That is normal.
“But you have no enemy because you need all hands on the deck to do what needs to be done in this state when you become the governor.
“Don’t quarrel or fight with anybody.
“You have what others will envy.
“Wherever I go, I will say the ADC in Ogun State has a good and credible product.
“Just give it a try and you will be pleasantly surprised.”
The Chairman of the ADC in the state, Dr. Gbolade Osinowo, presented the candidates for the Senate, House of Representatives and the State House of Assembly of the party to Obasanjo.
