JUST IN: Governor Ibikunle Amosun To Defect From APC, Any Moment From Now, Gives Powerful Reasons

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has threatened to dump the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Amosun took the stand last night, just a few hours after Governors Akinwunmi Ambode (Lagos), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Umar Ganduje (Kano), Mohammed Abubakar (Bauchi), and Kashim Shettima (Borno), met with President Muhammadu Buhari, to seek his intervention in the contentious primaries in some APC States.

The Governor said: “If the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party fails to uphold the candidacy” of his anointed Governorship Candidate, Abdul-Kabir Adekunle Akinlade, he “will leave.”

The Ogun State Governor, issued this threat during a meeting with some party Leaders and his loyalists, across the 20 Local Government Areas of the State, which held at his private residence, located inside Ibara, GRA, Abeokuta.

One of the APC Chieftains who was present at the meeting, disclosed that the Governor, who briefed his loyalists on the outcome of his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, as well as the National Leadership of the APC, “did not give any hint on the party he may join.”

The party Chieftain said that Amosun informed them that: “Rather than the NWC ironing out the issue of the Governorship, he (Amosun) was asked to share the National and State Assemblies tickets with certain group of individuals, who according to him, did not participate in both the Governorship and Legislative primaries.”

He added that: “The Governor berated those he termed: ‘Abuja connection APC’, for standing rules of the primary election on its head, and produced Abiodun as the party’s Candidate, instead of Akinlade, who emerged through a direct primary.”

The party Chieftain noted that Amosun: “Made it clear that he could not work with Abiodun, who he said lacked the wherewithal to win a Senatorial District, let alone the whole of Ogun State, insisting he would rather bid APC goodbye, rather than accept his candidacy.”

He added that the Governor was silent on the choice of the party, but made it clear that he would never defect to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
