He revealed this at the ongoing governorship debate recently organized by Channels TV.
According to Jegede, he was not part of the government that owed pensioners, civil servants, and the administration actually did well in general.
He added that he would really love to be in Rotimi Akeredolu’s shoes for some years so that the governor will stop making comparisons between himself and a commissioner.
His words, “I do understand Mr. Governor’s emotions. I would love to be in his shoes. I would love to be a governor so the people can compare what I will do in three and a half years to what he has done.
“This is because I do not know the basis of comparison between a commissioner (himself) and a governor (Akeredolu).
“Yes, I was part of the government. But that administration did well. The water project the governor mentioned is the brainchild of that administration.
“I would love Mr. Governor to point out specifically what he has done.”
