Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State on Tuesday declared that the state would support Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo’s presidential bid.

Our correspondent reliably gathered that Abiodun had been in dilemma over who to support between Osinbajo and former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Daily Trust reports that both Osinbajo and Tinubu were instrumental to Abiodun’s victory when he battled former Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s anointed candidate, Abdulkabir Akinlade, in the last election.

Insiders said the duo expect loyalty and support from the governor who is now in dilemma.

Also, his cabinet members are divided as some are backing Osinbajo’s bid while others are in firm support of Tinubu.

A source close to the cabinet, however, said Abiodun had not given directive to his aides on who to support between Tinubu and Osinbajo.

But Abiodun on Tuesday said Ogun would back Osinbajo, an indigene of the state from Ikenne in Ikenne Local Government Area of the state.

He said the support would enable him continue with some of the “laudable projects” of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

Speaking at a stakeholders meeting with the vice president held at the Akarigbo Palace Sagamu, the Alake Palace in Abeokuta and the Presidential Lodge, Ibara, Abeokuta, as well as the Palace of Olu of Ilaro and Paramount ruler of Yewaland, Abiodun said Osinbajo in the last seven years, had contributed to the many successes recorded by the federal government, noting “he is eminently qualified to lead the country”.

“The Vice President present here is home coming. We are pleased with his decision to run for the office of the president. He is competent and committed to lead the country in a higher capacity.

“Your steadfastness, integrity and character are all well known"
