The Executive Governor of Ogun State, Mr. Dapo Abiodun has said Friday that he is not a political emperor with entitlement mentality.

The statement, he made on his official twitter page is said to be a reaction from the humiliation directed at him by Mr. Bola Tinubu, during his visit to the state capital on Thursday 2nd May, 2022.

Mr. Abiodun’s comment was an apparent shade at Mr. Tinubu, who said in Abeokuta on Thursday that the Governor won’t be governor today but for his benevolence.


“I am not an emperor by any chance and this is not my family inheritance,” the Ogun governor tweeted on Friday morning. “I am holding this position in trust for all the people of this state and I have vowed to be fair, just and equitable and this is the solemn agreement I made between the Almighty God and myself.” Mr. Abiodun Tweeted.
