Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun has described the process that produced Dapo Abiodun as the party’s Governorship Candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC) as selection by the party chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and his cohorts.
According to him, Oshiomhole connived with a cabal in Lagos to write a fake result without recourse to the outcome of the direct primaries conducted in the State.
Amosun made the allegation in an interview on Monday shortly after swearing-in the new Chief Judge, Mosunmola Dipeolu held at the Governor’s office Chambers in Oke-Mosan area of Abeokuta, the state capital.
Amosun also fingered former Governors Bola Tinubu (Lagos) and Segun Osoba (Ogun) as having roles to play in the fraud, corroborating his argument on the silence of the duo, which he said translated to consent to the electoral fraud.
The outgoing governor, who could not hide his bitterness, insisted that, there were no genuine primaries from the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party, declaring that the only authentic primary was the one which produced Adekunle Akinlade as Governorship Candidate.
‘Mr President already knows, there was no election in Ogun State, other than the one we held. The issue of Chief Osoba and Asiwaju and co, what we said was that there was definite silence from their end, and silence means consent. ’
’We have not heard one word from any of them. Was there any election in Ogun State? Yes or No? They should come out and those that are hiding behind one finger, they cannot come out? People at this level should be courageous enough to take position, to come out, to come and tell us whether there was election’
“On Governorship, the day they said they did it or not, the one that we had, there was live telecast, people even witnessed. They all came that they are changing again. They removed Leke Adewolu, Mikail Kazeem. All of those ones are nothing but fraud’, the Governor declared.
