The former governor of Ogun State defected from APC to SDP in 2014 as a result of a conflict with Governor Ibikunle Amosun. But SDP did not win election and thus has become a deserted power-test base. He disclosed his return to journalists on Sunday after a closed-door meeting with some of the gods of APC. Some of the leaders that were present at the meeting are Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief bisi Akande, Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Governor Ajimobi.
Osoba is reported to have sung a Christian Hymn in Yoruba: “Ija d’opin, ogun si tan, Olugbala, ja’gun molu, orin ayo la o ma ko, Aleluya! That translated into English means, “the fight is over, the war is finished, the saviour is the conqueror, the song of joy we shall sing, Hallelujah!
