Ogun Assembly leader says Remos are not Ijebus, lauds Amosun on Yewa
The Ogun State House of Assembly Majority Leader, Asiwaju Yinka Mafe has debunked the claim that the Remo people are part of the Ijebus in the state.
Describing this as untrue, Mafe declared it was the Ijebus that orchestrated and popularized the claim, which was for selfish reasons’. The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, in a statement, lauded the state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun for canvassing that Yewa people from Ogun West Senatorial District should produce the next governor of the state.
Mafe believed it would be unfair and amounted to gross injustice and marginalization, if anybody from the other two senatorial districts should prevent Yewa people from producing the state governor in 2019, noting that Ogun West remained the only senatorial district yet to rule the state
since its inception in 1976.
The House leader said Remo has a distinct history of emergence from the Ijebus, particularly Ijebu-Ode, adding that Akarigbo who is the paramount ruler of Remo towns and villages, is at par with Awujale, the paramount ruler of the Ijebus.
