Abiodun, however, said he has forgiven those who visited violence on these leaders and party supporters nor does he hold any grudge against anyone that played a part in the incidence of February 11, 2019, where, he said, the “highest level of political intolerance” in the country was witnessed.
According to him, the level of intolerance during the campaign was only part of what God had ordained so as to ensure his emergence as governor.
“I have said often times that I do not bear grudge against anybody. You are all part of the scriptures that needed to be fulfilled. So, for all those who fought us, stoned us, intimidated us, harassed us, beat us, they all had their part to play so that the scripture can be fulfilled. Accordingly, we have forgiven them, more importantly, God has crowned us with victory,” he said.
The governor said it was hard for him to believe that Ogun State, a state of many first experienced such an ugly incident, stressing that the level of humility of his team in the midst of the ugly smear campaign played a huge role in their victory at the polls
