Osoba returns to Nigeria after knee surgery in UK
Olusegun Osoba, a former governor of Ogun State, has returned to Nigeria following successful knee replacement surgery in the United Kingdom.
Osoba’s surgery came just a few months after his political colleague, former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu, underwent a similar medical procedure in London.
Members of the Ogun State Executive Council paid the octogenarian a visit at his Ikoyi mansion in Lagos on Wednesday.
Speaking, Osoba revealed that Governor Dapo Abiodun was the first to visit him after his arrival, submitting that “the success of the present administration is my success.”
In his words, the Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, described Osoba as an elder statesman, who, he said, has the interest of the state at heart.
Talabi appreciated God for Osoba’s successful surgery, declaring that Ogun is happy to see him back on his feet.
While recuperating in London, it was reported that the veteran journalist was ignored by many Nigerian politicians, who had earlier thronged the foreign country on a get-well visit to Tinubu.
However, after the report, Gov Abiodun, the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly and some lawmakers visited the Oluwo of Oba.
Also, some serving Senators, including Solomon Adeola of Lagos West, were in London last week to identify with Osoba as he recuperates.
