APC Primaries: Amosun Draws Battle Line With Opposing Aspirants



Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun has declared a total war against politicians within the All Progressives Congress (APC) fold who are against the choice of his successor for the governorship primary election in the state.

Amosun vowed never to surrender the state to those he described as ‘profiteers’, who are keenly interested at reaping from where they did not sow.

The governor made this known while addressing hundreds of APC members and supporters in Abeokuta, over the botched gubernatorial primary election in the state earlier scheduled to hold last Saturday.

Addressing the party supporters, Amosun boasted that his supporters are on ground, well prepared and ready for the ‘usurpers’ on whichever date the national leadership of the party would fix for the governorship primary in Ogun.

The governor however, urged his supporters within the party to keep their “gun powder dry” for the political battle ahead.

Amosun also described as untrue, the allegation levelled against the state and the security agencies by five APC governorship aspirants in the state over security breach and threats to their lives.

He appealed to politicians and people of the state not to paint the state in a wrong picture of security risk when nothing of such actually occurred.

“Don’t worry because of them. This position we are today is by the benevolence of God, we are more now. We have the government, we have the party and we have the people.

“They have been trying all the tricks in the book, they will have trouble having 10 or five percent of the people. If they do it one million times, the result will be the same.

‘’The disgrace they got last time (2015) will be more this time.

“Keep your gun powder dry, we will mobilise you with the necessary logistics when the time comes. If they are doing kuru Kere moves, tell them that they will be disgraced. We are on ground here. We will give you money for your motor (transport fare) back.

“Nobody is going to kill anybody, if you have the love of Ogun State, don’t de-market it, nobody will kill anybody. We are ready for them, I am the chief security officer of the state, something is worrying their brain, we are waiting for them.

“Please don’t touch anybody, if they bring money collect from them, what we have done for you the day before yesterday, we are going to do another one, no retreat no surrender, it is not by might but by the benevolence of almighty God.

“It is operation deliver your ward. Go out and mobilise yourself. We outnumber them.’’
