2023: Battle for Ogun guber poll gathers momentum

Ogun state appears to present the toughest political fight for an incumbent governor come 2023, as some powerful forces within and outside the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress, APC, array themselves against Governor Dapo Abiodun for the exalted seat. This is not new and perhaps, unconnected with the nature and dynamic of Ogun politics.

Ogun is one of the most endowed and enlightened, in terms of resource, states in the country. It is the only state that has ruled the nation thrice – Obasanjo, Shonekan, and Obasanjo.

Governance in the state is not looked at administratively but in terms of power and performance, or what anyone could attain on a platter of gold. Those who govern the state must have to work hard to convince the enlightened citizens of the state to get there.

Right now, those who want to contest the governorship in 2023 are really working assiduously to sell their candidacy. Even the incumbent Gov. Abiodun who is seeking reelection is not finding it easy, just as all of them in the race.

The governor, despite all the good things he claimed to have done for the people in the last three years of being in power, is still not comfortable over his second term bid. Apart from the fact that the opposition are deep right on his throat, he is facing enormous crisis within his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
