A former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba, has undergone a “knee replacement surgery” in the United Kingdom.
Governor Dapo Abiodun disclosed this on Friday in his congratulatory message to the former governor.
Abiodun in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, said Osoba went under the knife on Thursday, adding that the surgery was successful and ex-governor “is recuperating very well.”
Abiodun, also said he spoke with Osoba on Friday and he “was in high spirits.”
The governor quoted the APC leader as saying that “Nigerians should rally round the leaders both at the federal and state levels, declaring that the country will overcome its present challenges.”
Abiodun added, “Our Baba, Chief Olusegun Osoba, underwent knee replacement surgery in the UK and we thank God that it went well, as he is now fine and in perfect condition. He spoke to me that he would have loved to be present at the Independence Day celebration, but for the surgery.
“He is not here physically to be part of the celebration, but he told me his heart is with us. He sent his words of admonition and encouragement, and asked Nigerians not to lose hope in Project Nigeria. Even in his condition, Baba offered prayers for Nigeria in general and Ogun State in particular.”
