The Ogun state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Sina Kawonise has dispelled the romour making the rounds that the governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel will be running mate to the former military president, Ibrahim Babangida.
He said the rumour is another ploy to discredit the governorÂ another angle to opponentsâ€™ efforts at destroying theÂ administrative excellence.
Speaking on behalf of the governor commissioner stated that his boss had no plan to become the former presidentâ€™s running mate neither has he contemplated becoming anybodyâ€™s running mate in the coming election.Â He dismissed it as a mere speculation of no importance.
â€œThe fact that IBB was chairman at OGD birthday ceremony does not mean anything other than it apparently was.Â People are just doing all this to blackmail the governor which, I can tell you, is already a failed mission.â€ Kawonise said.
He added that the governor remained unruffled in spite of several attempts by mischief makers to distract the governor from further delivery of democratic dividends to the people of Ogun state.
