I Didn’t Relocate To Ibadan - Saheed Balogun
Popular Nollywood actor, Saheed Balogun has reacted to news making rounds that he relocated to Ibadan in order to lobby for a post in the cabinet of the re-elected Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi.

The handsome actor who is known for his acting prowess in both the English and Yoruba genre of the Nigerian film industry spoke to Encomium explaining that the fact that he now lives in Ibadan does not mean he has relocated to Ibadan. He made it known that that he is an indigene of  Ibadan. He also stated that he only supported Governor Ajimobi during his campaign because he knows he can do it. Here’s what he told Encomium Magazine; 
‘‘I don’t understand what you mean by lobbying Ajimobi for political offer. That can’t be true. It’s just what some people are imagining because of my relationship with him. They don’t even know we are from the same place. He’s from Ibadan South East where I am also from. Former Governor Rashidi ladoja is also from Ibadan South East. But during the Governorship Campaign, I decided to support Ajimobi, not because I wanted anything from him but because I knew he could do it.

I didn’t relocate to Ibadan for political reasons. The fact is that I have been in Ibadan for some time now. However, that doesn’t mean I have relocated home permanently. ‘’ I am from Kobomoje family in Ibadan where late Architect layi Balogun was from. He vied for the presidential ticket of the defunct social Democratic party (SDP) alongside late MKO Abiola in 1992.”
