On the heels of Governors’ Amosun declaration that he won’t allow a non-indigene to succeed him, the Kinsmen of the embattled Senator, who is the target of the governor’s statement, under the aegis of Isaga descendants Union in Ogun State have cleared the air on the senator’s disputed origin, declaring that , he is an indigene of Ogun State.

They said Adeola popularly known as Yayi “is our son and thus qualified to vie for the governorship of the state in 2019.”

This testimonial came barely a week after the state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, after meeting with some Yewa elders in his office, vowed that a “foreigner” would not succeed.

Isaga Descendants after a meeting on Sunday in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area, faulted the senator’s critics and adversaries for calling him a ‘stranger’.

A former Pro-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Chief Lawrence Osayemi, who spoke on behalf of the group said Adeola is a bona fide son of Yewa in Ogun State.

Osayemi, who is the Balogun of Isaga and chairman of the occasion, said the group had unanimously adopted and endorsed him as the consensus governorship candidate of the state.

He said, “Senator Adeola’s origin in Yewa is never in doubt, even though his detractors and adversaries call him various names ranging from ‘Tekobo’ through ‘Atohunrinwa’ to ‘foreigner.’

“But we know he is a bona fide Isaga son, whose great-grandfather, Olege migrated from Isaga-Orile, a Yewa town in the present Abeokuta North Local Government Area to Ago Isaga, Pahayi, after the Dahomean invasion of Isaga-Orile on March 15, 1862.

“The invasion left the town devastated and there were family descendants, which led to the founding of so many Isaga settlements across Yewa, Abeokuta, Lagos and the Republic of Benin.”

He said the Isaga people would support Adeola’s aspiration.
