The Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun has reacted to a comment reportedly made by the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole on the party’s governorship primaries in Ogun state. He said Oshiomhole was sent to weaken and kill the party.
Oshiomhole released a statement through his media aide, Opeyemi Soyombo saying:
“For the avoidance of doubt, we state for the umpteenth time that there was no gubernatorial primaries in Ogun State other than the one held on October 2 that produced Hon. Adekunle Akinlade as governorship candidate.
“The attempt by Mr Issa-Onilu to confuse the issues is therefore belittling of someone holding a position of publicity secretary of a reputable political party.”
In response to the above claims by Oshiomhole, the Ogun State Governor Amosun described the Oshiomhole as a liar and called on leaders of the party to call Oshiomhole to order.
According to Amosun, nothing will make him change his mind from supporting President Buhari. He said:
“The people of Ogun State will not allow willing tools in the party’s national secretariat to hand over the state to some expansionist adventurers who are indesperate search for additional territories for their insatiable economic exploitation.”
“No provocation by Oshiomhole and his co-travellers who are working against the interest of President Buhari and the overall interest of the party will make him change my mind.”
There has been calls for Oshiomhole to be removed following the outcome of the party’s primary elections held across the country.
