Toast to Segun Osoba PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jonathan Elendu   
Saturday, 15 July 2006

Veteran journalist and two time executive Governor of Ogun State, Segun Osoba celebrated his 68th birthday this morning with family and friends in London. Osoba while responding to goodwill messages from Elendureports.com said, “I am happy and grateful for your good wishes and I’m glad I am still strong and able to serve our fatherland.”

                                                                                                                             

                                                                                                                         

Segun Osoba started his professional career in journalism in the 1960s. He rose through the ranks to the post of Editor and Managing Director of Daily Times of Nigeria. He was also at one time the Managing Director of Sketch Newspaper.

 

A very prominent member of the opposition movement in Nigeria, Osoba was defeated in 2003 by Gbenga Daniel of the Peoples Democratic Party when he ran for reelection. The election is believed by many Ogun State indigenes to have been rigged by Pres. Olusegun Obasanjo and his Party as a punishment to Gov. Segun Osoba.

 

Top politicians in Ogun State believe that Segun Osoba’s hard work during the 1999 campaign led to the dismal performance of President Obasanjo in Ogun State, especially at the polling booth where he voted. Known for his vindictiveness, the President did not forgive Osoba for that defeat and despite an alliance between the Alliance for Democracy (AD) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Pres. Olusegun Obasanjo ensured that his friend of decades lost the governorship of Ogun State to Gbenga Daniel. Ironically, Segun Osoba campaigned for Pres. Obasanjo in 2003.

 

Elendureports.com joins his friends and well wishers in celebrating the life of Segun Osoba, journalist and politician.
