The Ogun State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Suraj Adekunbi is making an orchestrated move to succeed his boss, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, the Executive Governor of Ogun State according to a reliable source.
The number three citizen of the state, is said to be oiling his political machinery ahead of 2019 general elections where he will slug it out with other aspirants for his party, All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship ticket.
Although, he is yet to make official declaration for his governorship ambition, he has quietly been showing interest, an insider squealed.
However, his ambition may have directly or indirectly received a boast due to the Governor’s preference for Ogun West Senatorial District to produce his successor in 2019. Incidentally, the Speaker is from Ogun West.
The West Senatorial District is the only region that has not produced governor in the state, Ogun East, and Central have had their own share of governorship seat in the state.
