Ogun State Governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun has debunked insinuations that he is set to defect from the ruling All Progressives Congress, to another party, over conduct of recent primaries in the state.
Rather, Amosun reiterated that he stands with President Muhammadu Buhari and believes in his sense of justice.
He debunked the rumours in a signed statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Otunba Adedayo Adeneye.
Said Adeneye: “It is true that enormous pressure was brought to bear on governor Amosun, to move to another party, because of the glaring injustice meted out to some party members at the recent primaries. The governor maintained his stand that he would not decamp, especially on account of president Muhammadu Buhari, whose judgment and sense of justice, as the leader of the party, he cherishes and values immensely.
“For those who know Amosun over the years, his struggles are usually not about his own person but equity, justice and fairness for all, especially the downtrodden.
“President Buhari represents this spirit and Amosun will stand by him and with him; in any party, at all times, and at all costs.”
