I am an indigene, you can’t stop me from contesting!

Senator Olamilekan Adeola, the senator representing Lagos West at the National Assembly, made this declaration on Sunday when he formally declared his intention to contest the Ogun State governorship election in 2019 on the platform of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The senator also replied to alleged criticism of his ambition by the incumbent, Governor Amosun.

According to him, he said he was aware the governor was opposed to his ambition, but that would not stop him.

In his words: “It is my strong conviction that God and the good people of the state would crown me a governor and not a single individual,” he said.

Mr. Adeola, however, thanked Mr. Amosun‎ for attacking him, which he said made him more popular in the state and environs.

Ogun Today reported how Mr. Amosun, without directly mentioning Mr. Adeola, said he would not hand over to a non-indigene pretending to “be a son of the soil”.

My father is from Ago-Isaga in Yewa zone, while my mother is from Kemta community of Abeokuta and am comfortable at home

Mr. Adeola said he would still pay a courtesy call on Mr. Amosun, to convince him that he his best possible successor.

According to Senator Adeola, the insinuation that he is not an indigene of Ogun West is false.

“My father is from Ago-Isaga in Yewa zone, while my mother is from Kemta community of Abeokuta and am comfortable at home,” he said.
