Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has invited all youths in the state to a town hall meeting.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, October 25, 2018 in state capital, Abeokuta.

This development comes in face of multiple moves that has greatly weakened the hold of the governor on his political party, the All Progressives Congress and political influence in the state.

Amosun has been denied the chance to determine his successor.

The governor’s preferred candidate, Adekunle Akinlade was denied the gubernatorial ticket by forces that secured the slot for Amosun’s estranged friend, Dapo Abiodun.

And to compound, the situation for the governor, virtually all the tickets to other elective posts he won for his loyalists have been taken away in moves that decimate his political influence.

Amosun had accused the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole of conniving “with a cabal in Lagos” to write fake results after the party’s primaries which produced Dapo Abiodun as the governorship candidate.

As he faces this political crisis and bedeviled with talks of possible defection to another political party – which he has denied – the Governor has now put the arrangement in place to stage a town hall meeting with all youths resident in the state.

Though the invitation is silent on the reason for the planned engagement with Ogun youths,  Bounce News gather it is not unconnected with the political trouble of the embattled governor.

The governor is expected to use the meeting to drum support for Akinlade.

Thursday’s meeting is coming up less than 24 hours after some women in the state threatened to match at the national headquarters of the APC in Abuja, on Friday naked if Akinlade is not given the party’s ticket.

The invitation for the Town Hall meeting, which was sent as a text message reads:
