Senator Elisha Abbo (Adamawa North – PDP) has publicly thanked former Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola, for funding his ambition seven years ago by giving him his monthly salary to contest for the chairmanship position in his hometown.
While entertaining questions from lawmakers, Abbo reminded Aregbesola how he helped him while he was contesting for the chairmanship of his local government “as a very tiny young man” in 2012. He said:
“I remember in 2012 when I contested for the chairmanship of my local government as a very tiny young man; I visited you in GRA, Ikeja in your house. I never knew you and you asked me to come in and I explained my problems and you told me to come to the government house and meet you.
“When I got there, I thought I’d stay there for three days without seeing the governor. I filled a form, you saw my name and ushered me into your office upstairs and gave me the whole of your salary for that month to go to Adamawa and contest election.
“Today, through the grace of God, I’m one of the people confirming your nomination. I want to enjoin my colleagues to please allow this detrabilised, honest Nigerian to take a bow and go and also ask of Mr President of Nigeria to give you a very big ministry. God bless you, sir.”
