I didn’t nominate Ogun deputy governor, though we are friends – Abiodun’s wife

Wife of Ogun State Governor, Bamidele Abiodun, has said though she knows the state deputy governor, Noimot Salako-Oyedele, right from childhood, she never influenced her emergence as the running mate to her husband.

The governor’s wife disclosed this on Saturday at a reception organised by the Awori Welfare Association of Nigeria in Lagos State to celebrate the deputy governor as the first deputy governor from Aworiland in Ogun state.

She said “I know the deputy Governor better than most people seated here today because we went to primary and secondary schools together but, I never influenced her emergence as deputy governor, but, I was very happy when she emerged. I am sure she will be a fantastic deputy governor because I am confident of her intelligence.”
