Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun has described the process that produced Dapo Abiodun as the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) as selection by the party chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomole and his cohort.
According to him, Oshiomole 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 Chamber in Oke-Mosan area of Abeokuta, the state capital.
Amosun also fingered the national leaders of All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Chief Segun Osoba as having roles to play in what he described as fraudulent APC governorship primary.
Corroborating his argument, the embattled outgoing Ogun state governor maintained that the silence of the duo APC national leaders translated to their consenting to the electoral fraud.
‘The President already knows there was no election in Ogun State. He knows that they just went to Lagos, write all results, and that what they did is fraud. If the National Working Committee or the National Chairman said there was any election in Ogun State”Amosun stated.
The outgoing governor, who could not hide his bitterness, insisted that, there were no genuine primaries held and supervised by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
He declared that the only authentic APC primary ever conducted was the one which produced Adekunle Akinlade as its governorship candidate for Ogun state.
“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 it.’’
