According to a report on P.M.News the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi has made it clear that he would not step down for anybody in the race to Okemosan, the seat of government in Abeokuta.
The Speaker has expressed his readiness to take over as governor of Ogun State, come 2019.
Adekunbi who disclosed his intention to contest the 2019 governorship race at Iwe Iroyin House, NUJ secretariat, Oke-Ilewo Abeokuta, said he had already consulted Governor Ibikunle Amosun on his ambition.
“My consolidation agenda is not about feeling gaps or whatever, I have been part and parcel of the current administration since inception. There is no doubt about that and you know quite alright the contributions of the two arms of government to the development of Ogun State. I think I have done my bit. I would not expect a situation where someone would just come around from somewhere, that does not know where we started, that does not know where we are and does not know where we are heading to. You don’t expect me to cast a shadow on what we have done.
”I am consolidating on the gains of this present administration,” he stated.
“I already consulted with him (Gov Amosun) and he was contented with my position,” he added.
