Osun Election:i Didn't Disparage Osogbo People, My Comments Were Twisted - Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has denied disparaging Tue people of Osogbo as being paupers claiming the opposition had gone to town to twist his remarks at the courtesy visit on the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun.


The APC leader said the speculation was intended to create bad blood among himself, Ataoja and the good people of Osogbo whom Tinubu said he holds in very high esteem.


Reacting to a viral video clip that purportedly showed Tinubu disparaging residents of the state, Tunde Rahman, Media Adviser to Asiwaju Tinubu said the former Governor of Lagos State never made such remarks.



"Thankfully, the attempt to create animosity has fallen flat on the faces of those behind it.

For the avoidance of doubts, however, Asiwaju Tinubu did not disparage the people of Osogbo in his remarks at the palace.


"What the APC leader said is that in vying for Osun governorship, the party’s candidate, Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, is motivated by service and not by any selfish consideration.


"He said for Alhaji Oyetola, using the governorship, if elected, as an avenue for primitive wealth accumulation is the least of his considerations for the office. He recalls that Alhaji Oyetola is an insurance guru who has been in the corporate world for over 30 years now. He founded and raised his company to the enviable level that it is today.

For Oyetola, it’s a call to service and nothing more.


"Asiwaju Tinubu couldn’t have said anything to disparage the same people whose votes he is seeking for the APC candidate.


"He is far too smart and politically savvy than that. And those spreading this false stuff know this much.


"The APC leader holds the Ataoja of Osogbo with reference, the same way he views and relates to other traditional rulers, and could not have said anything to demean their respectable thrones.


"He will also not do or say anything to lower the esteem of the people of Osogbo.

The report giving the impression that he disparaged them is concocted and should be totally ignored.


"Given his background and record over the years, is Asiwaju the type of person or politician who will disparage anybody or group of people on account of whether they are rich or poor?


"Asiwaju has always stressed the fact that he was born into poverty and had to achieve success in life through much suffering, perseverance and industry.


"This is also as it was with many of our great leaders including heroes like Chief Obafemi Awolowo and MKO Abiola. Like these icons, Asiwaju’s goal in politics is to utilize all he has to help empower people and lift them out of poverty.


"His message at the Ataoja's palace was that this is also the mission of Oyetola in politics; a man who has achieved financial success in his private life before coming into politics, has a reputation for honesty and integrity and is not running for governor to accumulate wealth," Tinubu's aide said.

We know Oyetola will win the Osun elections.

PDP made a big mistake by making a twerking Senator a governorship candidate. Twerking Adeleke cannot be Governor of Osun State. He is better off as one of Davido's back-up dancers.

But it was said openly and in Yoruba language. Jagaban was just trying to say oyetola have nothing to do with Osun state money and after all his candidate (oyetola) is financially ok and only interested in governing the people of osun. All na propaganda jare and we know people sponsoring the protest, but oyetola a bori

Yes, you are richer than Osun. That same money have intoxicated you.

Be sure that APC will loose this election if it's free and fair. The same 'asasi' that worked on Bisi Akande prior to the 2003 election have already worked on you too.

If by any means APC wins, Osun will be massively enslaved by Tinubu till thy kingdom come.
