The Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, on Wednesday was sent out of a meeting in former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s home, Headlinenews.news has learnt. Abiodun who had accompanied the Presidential Candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to Obasanjo’s home was asked to leave the venue of the meeting. Tinubu was in Abeokuta to meet with Obasanjo.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, former Governors; Gbenga Daniel, Olusegun Osoba and Bisi Akande also accompanied Tinubu to the meeting. Obasanjo who received the team later demanded that some people should leave the room as the meeting was about to begin.
A source at the meeting informed Headlinenews.news that when others were going out; Abiodun, who is the Chief Security officer of the State, was still on seat when Obasanjo told him to stand up as he was not part of the meeting. A bewildered Abiodun could not say a word but quietly left the room.. Even the guest, Tinubu, could not make a case for him to be at the meeting.
However, former Governor Olusegun Osoba was part of the meeting as well as Gbajabiamila and Olubara of Ibara, Oba Omolade who is a close friend of Obasanjo. Governor Abiodun had to wait outside for three hours while the meeting lasted.
He was visibly angry and made attempts to leave Obasanjo’s house. He was prevailed upon by his former Chief of Staff, Shuaib Salis, who is the Senatorial candidate of the APC in Ogun Central. He was made to realise that it was against protocol to leave.
