Obasanjo cannot be Ignored in Nigeria's politics-Segun Showunmi

Otunba Segun Showunmi 

The Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain and Spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Otunba Segun Showunmi has said that the former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo cannot be ignored in Nigeria politics.

Highlighting the relevance of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Senator Ibikunle Amosun in the politics of Egba land, he said that any politician in Egba land that ignores the former President will have himself or herself to blame.

He made this statement today at his country home while receiving the Labour Party House of Representatives Aspirant in the 2023 election, Hon. Tolu Phillips.

The meeting which took place in Abeokuta this morning was as a result of Hon. Phillips' request in order to avail him the opportunity to discuss his political intentions and how to navigate the political terrain of Abeokuta South under the Peoples Democratic Party.

Showunmi while receiving Hon. Tolulope and his entourage gave an historical relevance of Phillips family to the development of Egba land and that it was on that foundation that other Egba elites built on.

Hon. Tolulope Phillips had joined the Peoples Democratic Party during the last election as a result of the legal battle in the Labour Party, which impeded his chances to clinching the party's ticket.

As he welcomed him officially to the Peoples Democratic Party, Otunba Showunmi said that he has high hope in Hon. Tolu Phillips that if given the opportunity to represent the people will do well because of his gift of oration and brilliance.

He assured the young politician that the political terrain of Abeokuta South although it has its peculiarity but can  be well navigated if there is proper guidance and mentorship.

The Owagbemisoye of Idoani, in his leadership counsel admonished his guest to avoid political mistake which will cost him his aspiration now or in the future.

He cautioned Mr. Tolulope Phillips on needless spendings as political sycophants are only interested money politics.

Responding, Mr. Tolulope Phillips thanked Otunba Segun Showunmi for providing leadership support to him at this critical time of his political career, believing that with God and Hon. Segun Showunmi by his side his political boat will not capsize in the political murky water of Abeokuta South local government.

He promised to always contact Chief Segun Showunmi as he proceeds in his political vogage
