Those Who Rigged Abiodun Into Office Have Apologised, But He Must Be Removed
Former Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has vowed to work against the re-election of Governor Dapo Abiodun.
Recall that Amosun had backed the candidature of Adekunle Akinlade who contested on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) against Abiodun who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abiodun had defeated Akinlade with 241,670 votes against 222,153 votes.
Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that Akinlade as now joined the governorship ticket of Ladi Adebutu of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Speaking on Friday in Abeokuta after receiving an award, Amosun said Governor Dapo Abiodun was rigged into office.
The lawmaker representing Ogun Central Senatorial district claimed that those who helped rig Abiodun into office have apologized to him.
He said: “During the last election, thank God, Chief Osoba is here, I have said it, we won convincingly. They rigged, rigged, and ended up with 19,000.
“Some of them came to apologise to me. I can be mentioning names. We won that election. But I have moved on. We did our work, we will continue to do what we have to do. God will be with all of us.”
Speaking to newsmen, the former governor insisted that Abiodun must be removed, stressing that he was not in support of the present administration in the state.
“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,” Amosun said.
