2019: 'I Won't Surrender Ogun State To Opportunists' - Amosun
The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has a message for some governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
He said his political camp would not surrender the state to those hoping to reap where they did not sow.
The governor said this on Monday while addressing leaders of the APC and scores of supporters in the state who had converged on the MTR Hall, Ibara, Abeokuta, waiting to receive the electoral committee panel from the party’s headquarters in Abuja.
The governor was making a veiled reference to the other five APC governorship aspirants, who were contesting against the party’s consensus candidate, Adekunle Akinlade.
The others also in the race include a banker-turned-politician, Jimi Lawal; a former Deputy Governor, Senator Adegbenga Kaka, immediate past state Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Otunba Bimbo Ashiru; oil mogul cum politician, Prince Dapo Abiodun, and Abayomi Hunye.
Also reacting to the claims by the five governorship aspirants that their supporters were being issued death threats and also being intimidated, the governor said nobody was after anybody’s life.
He noted that they were merely afraid of their own shadows, urging his supporters and that of the party’s consensus candidate, Akinlade, to remain focused and be prepared for the governorship primary anytime it might come up.
