The Governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun, has reacted to the submission of Prince Dapo Abiodun as the candidate for Ogun State as against Hon Adekunle Akinlade whom he fielded as his own candidate.
Amosun stated that if the Ruling All Progressive Congress provokes him again, he would tell the world will know what we cooked that got the house burnt.
Adding that the party have forgotten how he lead in delivering Ekiti state and Osun election to them.
The Governor stated this in his twitter page.
He said “They should not forget I took the lead in delivering Ekiti and Osun elections. They should not provoke me further; hence, the world will know what we cooked that got the house burnt.”
Recall that the cause of the crisis started after the National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomole submitted the name of Prince Dapo Abiodun as the candidate for Ogun State as against Hon Adekunle Akinlade supported by Governor Amosun.
While reacting to what Oshiomole did, he said “the design of the APC National Chairman and his collaborators to hijack the government of Ogun State and hand it over to a gang of rapacious expansionists in the South-West will fail.”
Speaking through the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Adedayo Adeneye, Amosun noted that the emergence of Akinlade was initially through a consensus arrangement as allowed by the party constitution but was nevertheless subjected to a primary election when some gubernatorial aspirants disagreed with the outcome of the consensus arrangement.
“This is, however, without prejudice to the sanctity of the consensus arrangement which Adams Oshiomhole hypocritically tries to demonise. He added.
Stressing further, the Governor said “The ground on which Oshiomhole disputes the governorship primary in Ogun State is that the result was not announced by the State Electoral Committee from Abuja, therefore the governor resorted to self-help.
