‘My Life In Danger Over Refusal To Accept Gov Amosun’s Consensus Arrangements’- Osoba Cries Out

First Bank Nigeria

Olumide, son of former governor of Ogun State, Aremo Olusegun Osoba has raised the alarm that his life and that of his immediate family is being threatened by some unknown individuals over his rejection of a purported consensus lists of candidates of the All Progressive Congress (APC) that will contest for various elective positions under the ruling party in the State.

Prior to raising the alarm, Olumide Osoba had earlier issued a press statement where he declared he will not contest for the House of Representative seat of Abeokuta South Federal Constituency.

Read the press statement below:

I, Olumide Osoba, was privileged to be among the few chosen 360 out of the over 160 million Nigerians to Represent my people in the Green chamber in 2011-2015 at the House of Representatives. I will forever be grateful to the people of Abeokuta North, Obafemi Owode and Odeda Federal Constituency for finding me worthy to be their Representative. Having said that I owe full allegiance to that Federal Constituency and at no time have i ever entertained the thought of abandoning them to seek election into the House of Representatives from another Constituency. I served them with all i had and i am till this day grateful for the bond we have. I registered and vote at Owode Ward 3, unit 006 Geleodun polling unit in Obafemi Owode Local Government and I have never participated in the politics of Abeokua South.

It is therefore absurd and ridiculous to find my name on a list been peddled allegedly as a consensus list.
I at no time participated in any consensus arrangement and neither was I contacted. I therefore wish to disassociate myself from the list.

On the issue of primaries of our Great Party for aspirants seeking to become Candidates in the General election of 2019 i totally abide by the ruling and communiqué of the NWC and i am ready and willing to submit myself to a direct Primary in my Federal Constituency of Abeokuta North, Obafemi Owode and Odeda Federal Constituency.

Olumide Babatunde Osoba


The three paragraph alarm of threat to his life is also produced below:

” Since i threaded the path of honour and Party “
It is of great importance to bring this to the knowledge of  members of Our Great party, APC, and  the general public  that since I released my Press statement on the alleged ” consensus list” wherein my name was listed as one of the candidates of our Party in the forthcoming General Elections without my consent or consultation today 10th day of September, 2018, unknown persons have been threatening my life and that of my immediate family members in order for me to rescind the Press Statement and applaud the procedure that produced the list. 
Threat to my life or that of my family members is not the way out but obedience to lawful directive and policy of the Party. 
I, Olumide Babtunde Osoba, stand by my earlier Press Statement that I only support the Direct Primary ordered by the NWC of our party.
Thank you.
