Nuberu who has largely been with the progressive camp in Ogun State since the return of democracy in 1999, starting with the Alliance for Democracy (AD), said he still has his integrity intact as a politician, noting that as a loyal party man, he actively worked for the victory of all its governors. 


He reiterated his determination to take the party to greater heights, foster more unity among members and ensure ita success in future elections.


"In the Ogun State today, we have three former governors in our party with the current. There is none of the four governors who do not know me or who I did not participate actively during their respective electioneering processes," Nuberu said.

"We are in support of Nuberu Olufemi's ambition to chair our party at the State level is a welcome development and should be supported. We are also praying that he earns the blessings and support of everybody to actualise his dream. 


"Nuberu is a committed party man. I know him very well. He has the knowledge, experience and mobilising potentials to lead our great party in Ogun State and work for its unity,  progress and continued success. 


" It is our prayers that whatever arrangements that would be put in place by our respected parry leaders towards selecting and electing State party chairman will work in his(Nuberu) favour," he said.
