Blaze Newz gathered that TOP delegate went to Ejigbo in order to persuade the former Osun Assembly Speaker not to abandone the cacuse after Alhaji Moshood Adeoti was adopted instead of him.

Baderinwa wrote “I was at Rt. Hon. Najim Salam’s country home meeting as established in one of the pictures. He remained his usual self; calm, gentle, respectful, humane, humble and ever articulate. Salam’s words were representative of his mindset.

“He is not Jesus but I have not heard words of anger from him in the last 20 years or so. We worked together in the days past when we formed

“Omituntun Group” as part of efforts to revamp the ailing Osun AD which was rigged out of government. Salam’s mien was not different at today’s meeting. Even when he expressed reservations on some issues, he was as audible as he has always been. No word of anger but clear expression of his feelings.

“He has kind words for Rauf Aregbesola and the leadership of TOP even when he noted that there could have been a better end to how things went within the Caucus.

“For Aregbesola in particular, he noted that nothing should make him betray his trust like some others had done. He emphasized that not the craving for highest available position in the land would make him to betray Aregbesola. He noted that he is in control of his greed unlike some other people who cannot.

Salam stressed the need for the local government leaders to show that they are in charge of election and winning it in Ejigbo LG.

“Oluomo Najim Folasayo Salam, displayed his Omoluabi ethos by shaking hands with all delegates at the point of entering the bus for our departure from his modest country home.
