A strong indication has emerged that Ogun State governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun may field either a former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2011 and 2015, Gboyega Isiaka, a member of House of Representatives representing Remo North, Oladipupo Adebutu or a governorship candidate of the Unity Party of Nigeria, Prince Rotimi Paseda as governorship camdidate ahead of the 2019 governorship election in the state.
Amosun gave the hint while meeting with the leaders across the five local government areas in Ogun West who paid him a visit at his Oke-Mosan office, Abeokuta on the promise to make one of their products to succeed him in the coming election.

The governor who reiterated his stand that he will not handover to anyone considers to be a non-indigine of the state ,said he has not changed his position on the support for Ogun West to produce next governor in 2019, said he might consider Isiaka popularly called GNI or any other as his choice .

No fewer than six persons who are loyalists of the governor are jostling for his seat in the coming election. They are Speaker of House of Assembly, Suraj Adekumbi, his Chief of Staff, Tolu Odebiyi, a former member of House of Repesentatives representing Ipokia, Abiodun Akinlade , a commissioner for Forestry, Kola Lawal, commissioner for Commerce and Industry ,Bimbo Ashiru and a member of Hosue of reprsentatives from Ipokia/Yewa South, Kabir Akinlade .

Amosun, having listened to the leaders from the zone as a reaction to the recent endorsement of Senator Olamilekan Adeola aka Yayi by Ogun West Consultative Forum, vowed not to jettinson his earlier stance on the choice of governorship candidate from Ogun West.
He however, said, he will not handover to 'Atohunrinwa' in 2019,saying, instead, he might consider, Isiaka, Paseda or Adebutu for the post.

He said “I am not God, we are human. Where we are today, its God's doing. It will be an insult for our forbears . No 'Atohunrinwa' will be allowed.
"Mamora, Jimi Lawal, GNI, Paseda are all from here. We know them .We know ourselves. In my mind, i know who will be the candidate, but, i will not allow 'Atohunrinwa'.

"When you see GNI, do you see him going round to take pictures with traditional rulers anyhow? One of your sons or daughters will be governor.
"It will not be under my watch, that a non-indigine will be governor. They came to me before with Isaga-Orile and i said it is under Abeokuta North. They move from one place to another ".

Details later…
