The Labour Party in Ogun State has said that a former governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba deserves to be seen as a ‘traitor’ as he was rightly described by an Afenifere leader, Sen. Femi Okurounmu.

The Ogun LP disclosed this in a statement signed by its state Chairman, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi, and made available to journalists on Tuesday.

The duo of Osoba and Okurounmu, who are from the same Egbaland, have been at loggerheads with each other recently, calling each other names on pages of newspaper.

The discord between the two octogenarians got messier few days ago when Osoba, through his lawyer, Wole Olaonipekun SAN, demanded a sum of N3b from Okurounmu as damages for calling him a traitor within a period of 14 days; failure of which he would be dragged to court.

Reacting, the LP described Osoba’s request as ‘amusing’; while also describing the Egba High Chief as, “politically unstable and ever-recurring.”

“The fact is, even if one is to doubt the truth in Sen. Okunronmu’s claim, one would be highly discouraged by some recent actions taken by our politically unstable and ever-recurring PA Osoba,” Arabambi stated.

The Ogun LP Chairman said it would be difficult, “to consider the possibility of Osoba not deserving the label of a traitor.”

According to him, Osoba had encouraged, “an expelled Olaposi Oginni, the ex-State Secretary of Ogun Labour Party to unleash treachery on the party.

Arabambi added that “It got to a stage that Pa Osoba used Oginni in a futile attempt to allow the case of LP to fail at the Ogun State governorship election tribunal.

“Pa Osoba was seen to have financed the legal team that came with Oginni to court to take sides with all the respondents against the petitioners – LP and its governorship candidate, Mrs Modupeola Sanyaolu.”

“As for us in LP, once you are comfortable to be a sponsor and a loud party to treachery, you are more likely to be deserving to be seen as a traitor as said by the Former Senator Femi Okurounmu.

“We in LP salute the courage of the elderly Sen. Okunronmu, who by his pedigree, will be able to justify his claim even in a court of law.”
