The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogun State, has slammed the Governor Ibikunle Amosun, over a political development ahead of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state next week, calling him a liar. The party accused Amosun of hurriedly removing campaign posters of his preferred candidate on the platform of Allied Peoples Movement, APM, Adekunle Akinlade ahead of the President’s visit. It further accused the governor of deceiving the people of the state by making them to believe that Buhari was supporting him against the candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
Following a primary election organised by the National Working Committee of the party, which produced Dapo Abiodun, against Amosun’s choice candidate, Akinlade , the governor openly declared that he would not support Abiodun’s candidacy, as he threatened to work against his party in the gubernatorial race. He later threw his weight behind Akinlade, his preferred candidate for the plump job, to contest the governorship seat under the umbrella of APM, that is even as he got a ticket on the platform of APC to contest for the Ogun Central senatorial seat.
“Amosun lied that Buhari was supporting all his moves concerning APM. This morning, ahead of the President’s visit on Tuesday, he quickly removed all APM flexes, banners and signage. Are you in doubt that he is on his own, Buhari will never support any governorship candidate outside APC”, the statement read in part.
