The Ogun State Governor and the All Progressives Congress’ candidate for the Ogun Central Senatorial District, Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday said he would work against the governorship candidate of the APC, Dapo Abiodun, in the 2019 governorship poll.
Amosun said this while addressing a stakeholders’ meeting of the APC which was attended by his preferred governorship candidate and the candidate of the Allied People’s Movement, Adekunle Akinlade, at the Presidential Villa in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital. As Amosun was addressing his supporters, a former state governor, Chief Olusegun Osoba, at another venue described those against Abiodun’s candidacy as “disappointed” party members.
Amosun, however, said he would remain in the APC to contest the senatorial seat and ensure the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari. He insisted that he was in support of the action of the APC aggrieved members who dumped the ruling party for the APM.
Amosun’s statement came as 26 aggrieved candidates of the APC loyal to him announced their movement to the APM.
