He said:

“When I left office, I was so harassed to the point that all the plaques and the symbols of all the projects I did were the first to be removed throughout the state. The first 16 years of my leaving this office have been very, very traumatic. I never came back, I became a snake that doesn’t go back to where it has turned over its skin."

The Punch also reports that the former governor added that his name was sent to the EFCC so many times.

According to him, the EFCC investigated but found nothing, saying that he couldn’t come to Abeokuta not to talk of visiting the office of the governor.

Osoba, however, expressed his joy for coming back to the Oke-Mosan governor’s office after 16 years of leaving office.

He said:

“Mr governor, you will not know how many hours you have added to my life with this action today. It may be hours, weeks, days, or years, but you have added something very great to my life today.”
