A chieftain of the Social Democratic Party, SDP and a former governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba said that the party has adopted President Goodluck Jonathan as its sole presidential candidate for the coming Presidential election.

Osoba said Jonathan was adopted based on his performance in office in the last six years, a not surprising announcement as the SDP is believed to be funded by the PDP.

    President Jonathan has strengthened relations with neighbouring
    countries and the broader international community, soliciting their
    collaboration to end the scourge of Boko Haram. LETS GIVE HIM OUR SUPPORT!

    All hands must be on deck to deliver Goodluck Jonathan.

    Chief Osoba show me your friend and I will tell you who you are…

  • Owolabi Alaba says:

    Is Chief Osoba becoming senile? Just because Governor Amosun is not worshiping you, does that mean you must tear down the house? Its a shame. Again, this is the beauty of democracy. We have a number of adults demonstrating their craziness. Jonathan has performed great? Is Governor Osoba in Nigeria? Insecurity, corruption, oil and gas problem, national treasury emptied? Haba. Governor. Now, I know that in your bitterness, you have become a bull in China shop. You and drug lord Kashimu Buruji and former Governor Gbenga Daniel are now in the same camp? Whao? Truly, this is penkelesi year. We would wait and see the judgment of the people on your new found camp.. Certainly, Governor Osoba is finally using the winter of his political life in a very cold and brutal camp-the PDP camp. Shame on Governor Osoba.
    Recently you went to Ago-Iwoye and tried to play the sectional game of Egba and Ijebu. You accused the Governor of paying more attention to the Egbas. But why you were in government, did you pay attention to the Ijebus. What about your own policies? How did the people of Ogun State benefit? List your achievement in power and compare it to Mr. Amosun. Then we can talk. Politically, it seems, you are finished.

    Very truly,
    Owolabi Alaba, U.S.A
