The National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said that the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, would not have emerged as the governor of the state if not for his support.
In 2019, Abiodun led with 241,670 votes against his closest rival, Adekunle Akinlade, of Allied Peoples Movement, who scored 222,153 votes.
The governor won in 11 local government while Akinlade led in six local government areas as the Peoples Democratic Party Candidate, Buruji Kashamu won a single local government.
However, Tinubu while addressing APC delegates in the state on Thursday during his visit to seek their support ahead of the party’s presidential primary boasted that he has paid his dues in the political landscape of the country.
In a video obtained by AN24, the leading APC presidential aspirant said, “When things were not going well for Ganiyu Solomon, I took him to Abuja. When Atiku was being dealt with by Obasanjo within their party, he ran to me for succour.
“When Nuhu Ribadu was haunted, I was able to use my wisdom to salvage the situation. I have been serving them for a long time. Dapo Abiodun would not have become a governor if not for my help.”
