Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State on Friday morning broke his silence over allegations that he impregnated an NYSCfemale member, who later delivered twins.
Even his mother-in-law had to call him to confirm if what she heard about a ‘second wife’ having twins was true or not.
The governor who debunked the rumour as “concoction of idiots” at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, during a town hall meeting of stakeholders for the 2018 Budget preparation, said no lady or girlfriend had twins for him.
The meeting was organized by the state’s Ministry of Budget and Planning for the purpose of collecting the inputs of all stakeholders and build them into the preparation of the 2018 Executive Appropriation Bill but Amosun used the avenue to clear the air on rumours being circulated against him.
He said he has been married to his wife, Mrs Olufunso Amosun, in the last 26 years and had never kept a girlfriend, let alone having one that delivered twins for him, adding that the twins issue also got to the notice of his wife.
He noted that task of keeping one wife is even challenging today in Nigeria and had no plans to double such challenges with additional baggage.
The governor also vowed to smoke out those peddling rumours and falsehood against him, saying he would send them to jail where they rightly belonged.
He noted that those purveyors of falsehood could beat James Hadley Chase in “fiction concoction.”
