Chief Lekan Osifeso, the Otunba Adeshemowo in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State is not just another moneybag who throws his weight around for attention. He has carved a niche for himself in his philanthropic endeavours.

It therefore did not come as a surprise when the news filtered in that he has been under tremendous pressure from his people in Ijebu land, who have been urging him to throw his hat into the ring for an elective office.

According to information obtained by Celeb Watch, some youths and elders from his constituency recently paid him a visit in his Abuja home, urging to “please come and serve us.” The visitors were said to have told him point blank that they had come to seek his participation in the 2015 elections. The group could, however, not reach a consensus on what office they wanted him to seek.

While many of them believe that he has the clout to replace the incumbent governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, others urged him to test his popularity at the upper chamber of the National Assembly. Osifeso was said to have thanked the visitors and told them he would consult with family and friends.
