Ogun 2023 Guber: Abiodun To Political Allies - You Betrayed Me


Governor Dapo Abiodun seems to have come to term with political reality when he openly admitted that he was betrayed by those posing as friends in a build up to the last Saturday March 18 ,2023 governorship poll

Abiodun was speaking on Tuesday during heroic welcome given to him by  thousands of residents in his home town of Iperu-Remo in Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State, to celebrate his reelection into the office of the governor.

The governor while being received at the garage area of the town,attributed the victory at the guber poll to the Almighty God and the people for standing solidly behind him during the election.

It will be recalled that Abiodun during the guber poll lost in most parts of Remo and Ijebu axis of the State including his Ikenne Local Government Area, inspite of legacy projects executed  and other capital projects still ongoing in the Ogun East Senatorial District 

"This election has shown that man will always be man and God will forever remain God. In the course of this election, people we thought were our friends betrayed us, people stabbed us at the back, and many disappointed us", Abiodun admitted

"I know that even those who called themselves our friends did not vote for us, but that does not matter anymore because the elections have come and gone, and God has given us victory", he stated

"But we should not be surprised because even in the Bible, our Lord Jesus Christ was betrayed despite all the good things that he did. We should be grateful to God because despite all the betrayals and all, God still granted us victory. "

Abiodun explained that the renewal of his mandate was an indication that people appreciated what the administration has been able to achieve in less than four years in office, adding that "it is a call to work even harder for the people".

The governor called for support of people of the state including his political opponents to join hands with him in building the future of Ogun together

"I therefore use this opportunity to call on all Ogun State people irrespective of their political affiliations or religion, to rally round me to build this state because it belongs to all of us," he added 

Addressing market men and women on the sideline of the reception, Abiodun thanked them for their individual and collective efforts towards the victory, saying that support and cooperation would be needed for the success of his second term in office.

The Iyaloja General of Ogun State, Alhaja Yemisi Abbas, who spoke on behalf of the market men and women, appreciated God for not putting them to shame from the outcome of the election, saying the performance of the governor in his first term led to the victory.

According to Alhaja Abbas: "You worked very hard, and this victory is the reward for that hard work. I want to assure our governor that we the market men and women of this state will support you, we will stand by you to ensure that you succeed in the second term just as you succeeded in your first term".
