He commended Aremo Osoba for his commitment to public service, describing the renowned journalist and politician as the epitome of honesty, dedication and service.
According to the governor, Osoba used his elevated positions for the improvement of the people in his spheres of influence.
“Chief Olusegun Osoba is a true democrat and member of the progressive camp, who has been playing active roles in party politics and governance in Nigeria.
