Ogun, Abeokuta – Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state has received and welcomed the standard bearer of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu back to the state.
Tinubu’s return to Ogun state comes after the APC presidential candidate in the build-up to the special convention of the party some few months ago ridiculed the state governor in the state capital during a consultative visit to the party delegates.
In a viral video, Tinubu was seen ranting and questioning the loyalty of the governor. Tinubu claimed to have helped facilitate his emergence as the governor of Ogun state.
