Ogun isn't my family inheritance, says Gov Abiodun

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State on Friday said the state's governorship position is not his family's inheritance.

Abiodun's statement comes less than 24 hours after the presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, fired some shots at him[Abiodun] on Thursday.

While addressing APC delegates in Abeokuta, the state capital ahead of Monday's presidential primary, Tinubu openly stated that he made Abiodun the state governor.

“It has been over 25 years now that I have been serving them. This one sitting behind me, Dapo, can he say he can be the Governor without me? We were together at the MKO Abiola Stadium, he was intimated, they didn’t want to give the party’s flag, I was the one that handed the flag to him. He knows that he cannot be the governor without the help of God and my support.

“If he wants to meet God at the right place, he must know that without God and me, he would not have become Governor,” Tinubu said.

However, in what many have termed a subtle response to Tinubu's comment, though he didn't mention Tinubu in the tweet, Abiodun who had openly endorsed the candidacy of Tinubu's opponent, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, declared that he was not an emperor by any chance.

“I am not an emperor by any chance and this is not my family inheritance.

“I am holding this position in trust for all the people of this state and I have vowed to be fair, just and equitable and this is the solemn agreement I made between the Almighty God and myself,” Abiodun tweeted.
