APC governor changes surname, adopts Obasanjo as new father


*Former Nigeria President, Olusegun Obasanjo and Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun

The Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has announced the change of his surname days after the death of his biological father.

The Nation reports that Abiodun made the declaration when the former president Olusegun Obasanjo paid a condolence visit to him over the demise of his father.

It was learnt that Governor Abiodun said that Obasanjo has been his father over the years even before his father breathed his last, adding that the ex-president must step up now as his father.

He said: “Baba, you are going nowhere. Baba, by the grace of God, you will live longer. We cannot afford you are going now. You have been my father over the years, but now that my biological father has gone to meet with the saints, you have to step up now to be my father.”

He asked Obasanjo to take charge as his father since his biological father is no more, adding that since the former president did not decline the request, it can be safely assumed to have been approved with immediate effect.

According to the report, the governor has thus successfully ‘ported’ to the Obasanjo family, from his natural Abiodun lineage.

In his response, Obasanjo said that the governor’s father, Pa Abiodun died well, adding that at 89, no one could accuse the evil ones of having done their worst.

He said that to live that long in this era of despondency in a country that God gave a beautiful cap but no head to wear it on, is a feat.
