President Tinubu and other Yoruba elders directed me to come and take over Osun State from the opposition.
With the help of God and the support of Asiwaju, I was able to excel as a Governor for 8 years even though it was not easy with the help of those that turned to my enemy for four years.
In 2019, after the Supreme Court judgment, I came to this venue with the person I handed over power to.
The reason why people are applauding me over my successes in Osun today was because of the great work I did when I was in government and those who turned themselves into enemies today, we worked together in government.
I thank God who showcased me from Lagos through the help of President Bola Tinubu, he is the architect of my success.
I counseled that I have played my own part and handed over to the person I loved.
