"I Don’t Fear Buhari" Says Amosun
To who it may concern, Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, said he is not afraid of President Muhammadu.
“To put the record straight, I never said I fear President Muhammadu Buhari. I only said I fear God. I don’t fear President Buhari,” Amosun said during the 2018 Christmas Carol and Service of Nine Lessons organised by the state government in Abeokuta, the state capital.
The governor had earlier been quoted to have said that he fears God and Buhari while addressing leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress at the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta.
The NWC had on Friday inaugurated the caretaker committee for the state to replace the embattled state executive led by Derin Adebiyi.
While reacting to the media report, Amosun said he was shocked to read on the pages of newspapers on Saturday that he fears God and Buhari.
He said, “You know this is our time as politicians, a time when politicians will call black, blue.
“Yesterday (Friday), I held a meeting with our people, and the way I started was that, I was brought up to fear God.
“But I saw newspapers this morning (Saturday) that Amosun says he fears God and Buhari.
“No! It is only God I fear, the one that is alive, the only one that will say a thing no one can change. That is the only God that I fear.
“Of course, I respect President Buhari. I love him and he loves me too. I know him, he fears God because he is from God. He doesn’t beg for respect, he commands and earns it. So, it is only God that I fear.”
