Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has said that Mr Joseph Olasunkanmi Tegbe has been confirmed as the true son of Ibadan with the award given to him.
Ajimobi spoke on Saturday at the grand finale of the 2019 Ibadan Cultural Festival and Awards ceremony organised by Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII).
Ajimobi spoke on the controversy trailing the origin of 2019 APC governorship aspirant, Olasunkanmi Tegbe.
“I am proud and happy to say that we’re brothers. This award has put to rest series of arguments over whether Tegbe is from Ibadan or elsewhere, they said the same thing about me.
“CCII has confirmed it with this indigenous award and I want to tell you that you lose something and at times you gain. Now, I am sure that Ibadan and Oyo State people will vote for Tegbe when next he stands for election”, he said.
