The forthcoming governorship election in Ogun state may not likely turn out to be what many people from the state are expecting it to be. There is possibly going to be backstabbing, display of power and pride and tendency to reclaim a lost mandate.
This could be noted from what the former governor of the state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun said at an event in Abeokuta on Friday.
Amosun who was in the state capital to receive an award from Abeokuta Clubs in commemoration of the club’s 50th Anniversary disclosed how the 2019 governorship election was rigged against his candidate, Adekunle Akinlade.
Akinlade was the candidate of Allied People’s Movement, APM in 2019. He was heavily backed by Amosun who was the Senatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress.
According to Amosun, the election was won by Akinlade but it was rigged for Governor Dapo Abiodun who contested under the APC. He explained that those who rigged the election have come to apologize to him and he has moved on.
But this time, it is not going to be business as usual. He disclosed that he is not in support of Dapo Abiodun’s administration and he has to go in 2023.
The senator who represents Ogun West Senatorial District also assured his supporters that the next line of action would soon be made public.
“Well, I am happy. When you are in a place and they are telling you that you have done the work of four or five governors altogether. I feel elated. I am happy that they appreciated our little efforts.
“Just wait, very soon, you will hear where we are going next. Clearly, you know my stand, and my stand is my stand. I am not supporting this administration that is there now. He must be removed,” he said.Follow us on social media
