Ex-Ogun Deputy Gov, Segun Adesegun, In Political Limbo


While Prince Segun Adesegun, a former Ogun State deputy governor, was in the All Progressives Congress, APC, he was what one would call a political heavy weight. He was loved and respected; and he hugged the limelight to the admiration of all.

But all that changed shortly before the last year general election when he pitched his tent with his political godfather, Chief Olusegun Osoba, and then defected to the Social Democratic Party, SDP.

But as many would argue, if he were clairvoyant, he would have thought it out very well because he seems to have now been eclipsed, politically.

The Ago Iwoye, Ogun State-born politician had contested as running mate to Kunle Tejuoso, who was the SDP governorship candidate, but the party failed to record any significant impact.

It was gathered that some of his supporters who also defected to the SDP have now begun to retrace their steps back to the ruling party, APC.

It will be recalled that before his defection, his relationship with his former boss, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, had reportedly gone sour. At the height of their disagreement, Adesegun allegedly threw a jab at the governor through a letter in which he detailed alleged injustices against his person and his office.
