Sanwo-Olu congratulates Osoba on his 84th birthday

The Lagos state governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has congratulated the former governor of Ogun state and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Aremo Olusegun Osoba, on the occasion of his 84th birthday.

 Governor Sanwo-Olu in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, described Osoba, who clocks 84 Saturday, as a versatile journalist, media guru, a democrat, and respected political icon, who has made great impact in the lives of many Nigerians.

 He said Aremo Osoba has used his youth and adult life to contribute positively to the media industry, politics and governance, especially in Ogun state, where he served as governor during the aborted Third Republic and the current Fourth Republic.

 Governor Sanwo-Olu commended Aremo Osoba for his commitment to public service, describing the renowned journalist, media manager and politician as the epitome of honesty, dedication and service.

 “Aremo Olusegun Osoba is a true democrat and member of the progressive camp, who has been playing active roles in party politics and governance in Nigeria. He is an advocate of good governance, restructuring and true federalism in Nigeria.

 “He played a crucial role during the June 12, 1993, presidential election annulment struggle by aligning with progressives and pro-democracy activists, under the platform of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) to fight the military junta for the enthronement of democracy and return of Nigeria to civilian government on May 29, 1999,” he said.
