The All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, to be mindful of his outbursts against the party’s governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.

The party said the governor deserved to be pitied and prayed for, over his recent comments against the APC governorship candidate.

The APC in a statement by the Caretaker Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Tunde Oladunjoye, said the governor was suffering from “outgoing syndrome, emanating political amnesia and loss of touch with reality.”

The governor, who was against Abiodun’s emergence as APC flagbearer, has openly declared that he would not support him at the polls.

He had vowed to ensure victory of his anointed candidate, Adekunle Akinlade who is contesting on the platform of Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

But Oladunjoye said the party remains focused despite Amosun’s position, saying Abiodun’s victory “is assured.”

The statement partly reads: “For an individual to attempt to play God, and assault the collective intelligence of the well informed people of Ogun State by telling them who the next governor of Ogun State will be, as if he has already written the results, shows that such person deserves our pity; we don’t need to exchange words with him, but to actually sympathize with him on his present state of paranoia on Dapo Abiodun.”

"We would call on members of the public to please sympathise with the governor and pray for him, as he is obviously manifesting outgoing syndrome resulting from political amnesia, loss of touch with reality and fear of life after office”.

"The constant, ceaseless and monotonous attacks on Dapo Abiodun by the governor and his minions shows that our candidate is the leading contestant and his imminent victory is only a matter of weeks.

“We challenge the governor to publish the recent survey he commissioned and which he read to some leaders in his house last week, wherein it was revealed that his preferred governorship candidate will not only lose the election, but also lose in the governor’s hitherto strongholds of Ifo, Ewekoro and Ado Odo Ota Local Governments.”

“Our party and candidate will remain focused, maintain decorum and continue to sell out policies and programmes to the good and discerning people of Ogun State, even as we are sure of victory”, the statement read in part
