The Ogun State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary crisis has taken a fresh dimension as Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has vowed to dump the party like bad habit.
Sources disclosed that; “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 party.”
Our sources added that the governor threatened to dump the party during a meeting with some party leaders and his loyalists across the 20 local government areas of the state held at his private residence located inside Ibara GRA, Abeokuta.
Insider told us that the governor said; “Rather than the NWC iron out the issue of the governorship, he 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.”
“The governor berated those he termed ‘Abujaconnection APC, for standing rules of the primary election on its head and produced Dapo Abiodun as the party’s candidate instead of Akinlade, who emerged through a direct primary.”
“Amosun made it clear that he could not work with Dapo 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.”
