Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun has described as untrue a report in a section of the media that a female youth corps member had a set of twins for him.
The governor said the rumour gained so much currency that his mother – in-law had to call him to confirm if what she heard about a ‘second wife’ having twins for him was true or not.
Amosun said he had been married to his wife, Olufunso Amosun, for about 26 years, noting that he had never kept a girlfriend, let alone having one that delivered twins for him.
He noted that the task of keeping one wife ‘’ is even challenging today in Nigeria and (he) had no plans whatsoever to double such challenges with additional baggage.’’ T
According to Amosun, some unnamed politicians, who are aspiring to govern Ogun State in 2019 are responsible for the spate of falsehood churned out against him and his administration.
The Governor who cited the reported raid of his Lagos home by the Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as the latest in the series of falsehoods being circulated against him, vowed to smoke out the perpetrators and jail them.
He said instead of those aspiring to govern the state to tell residents how they intend to transform the state and make it better, they have resorted to engaging some “idiots” who would sit in their room to concoct falsehood in the vain hope that lies and rumour mongering would help the governorship aspirations of their masters.
The governor vowed to fish out those spreading rumours and falsehoods against him, and have them sent to jail.
