Leaders in Yewa-Awori in Ogun West Senatorial District in Ogun  State, have  lamented  how  the feud between former President Olusegun Obasanjo  and erstwhile  governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel during  the last year general election  cost them the coveted governorship seat.

Speaking  at  a  colloquium on 2015 political agenda  in Abeokuta Sunday, Chairman of the forum, Dapo Oke  who led  other people  including former  commissioners  for  works  and agriculture, Lai Taiwo  and  Tunji Akinosi  disclosed  that, the region would come up with a consensus candidate to face the incumbent governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun in the coming 2015 governorship election in the state.

Obasanjo  and Daniel  who were from the same Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, locked horns over  candidates for the  governorship of the party in 2011 election leading to the loss to Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, candidate Senator  Ibikunle Amosun.

According to Oke, apart from the feud between former President Obasanjo  and  ex-governor Daniel which cost us the governorship seat in the 2011 election, Ogun West is not politically organised and as such, it has leadership issues to resolve.
