A Senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial district in Ogun State, Gbenga Obadara, yesterday, explained why former governor of the state, Chief Segun Osoba, must not forgive governor Ibikunle Amosun.
Obadara, who is a member of the group loyal to Osoba, said though, the governor had asked the people in the state to help him apologise to Aremu Osoba, but claimed the governor by actions, had not shown sincere repentance.
The senator, who is also, Chairman, Senate Committee on Privatisation, spoke while featuring on a live programme on a private radio station in Abeokuta.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state has been polarised into two factions, with former governor Osoba leading one faction and Governor Amosun leading the other.
The governor had asked the people of the state to help him beg Aremo Osoba to allow reconciliation.
While listing reasons Amosun’s apology must not be accepted, Obadara accused the governor of not being a team player, claiming “the party is lopsided, our people paid for the congresses, but, they were sidelined.
“When we complained to the national leadership of the party, they did nothing. He who goes to equity must come with clean hands. How can you explain a situation in a state where five to six local governments do not have commissioners?
“The governor does not have good advisers. Our leader, Aremo Olusegun Osoba was humiliated, he was abused and his house was defaced. The governor did not say anything about it. He neither phoned the leader nor went to his house since he became governor. The appointment he made since he assumed office is lopsided; so many local governments do not have representatives in his government.
“The governor had said all the National Assembly members in the state are inconsequential, and we do not have electoral values. He is not a team player and his commissioners cannot talk to us.
“Some of his loyalists said they will kill us. When we told him what his people told us, he said he did not send anybody. Except justice is done, if we did not get the required justice, definitely, we will take our fate in our hands.”
