Confab: We’ll Not Disappoint Nigerians, Says Osoba

osoba-2_politicsA former governor of Ogun and stalwart of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Segun Osoba, on Wednesday assured that the ongoing National Conference would not disappoint the expectations of Nigerians.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Osoba made the statement against the backdrop of speculations in some quarters that the conference might not take the nation anywhere.

Speaking with newsmen in Lagos, Osoba said that achieving success at the conference could be tough but that at the end, “God will guide the delegates to do what is right.

“There will be fights, we may even walk out and walk back but at the end people will reason. No doubt there are diverse views.

“Many people at the conference have irreconcilable positions as it is now but in the end, the nation’s continued peace and unity will prevail”, he stated.

On the just-concluded Ekiti polls, the former governor said that the crushing defeat suffered by the APC was a wake-up call for the party.

“We want to put the election behind us. Gov. Kayode Fayemi is a well brought up, decent and exposed gentleman. He displayed a high level of magnanimity after the polls.

“Fayemi’s acceptance shows how democratic the APC is”, Osoba said, dispelling allegations that he had defected from the APC.

“The spin doctors are at work. I enjoy it”, he asserted.

Osoba, however, disclosed that different political parties were wooing him but that he had not accepted to join any.

“I am not purchasable and will never join a conservative party. When I take a decision you people will know”. (NAN)
