The Senator representing Lagos West and the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ogun West senatorial district, Solomon Adeola Olamilekan, has called on the National Working Committee of the party to caution the immediate past governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, over his “serial anti party and anti people tendencies”.
Adeola equally raised the alarm that the former governor is already plotting a repeat of APM against his party, APC in the days towards 2023, urging the NWC not to treat Amosun’s threat to work against the reelection bid of Governor Dapo Abiodun, with kids’ gloves.
The senator who made this call in a statement he personally signed and made available to the Daily Sun, on Sunday, also chided the former governor for his allegation that the 2019 election was skewed in favour of the incumbent governor against his Akinlade of the APM.
Adeola said, “the allegation of the former governor and his anti party stance, betrayed the mind of a man who is afraid of the looming political retirement that awaits him in 2023”.
He further described the immediate past governor”as a supposed APC member with a record of serial anti-party and anti-people tendencies, who is aping to play God in the affairs of Ogun State.
“These invidious utterances would have been left unanswered as yet another ranting from a personality imbued with a sense of over bloated ego of messianic proportion in Ogun state politics. However, with 2023 General Elections around the corner, it is appropriate to join issues with a supposed APC member with a record of serial anti-party and anti-people tendencies aping to play God in the affairs of Ogun State.
“As a stakeholder in APC, Ogun State and the administration of Prince Abiodun, and by God’s grace and the will of the people, the senatorial candidate of Ogun West senatorial district for the 2023 election, I state with all emphasis that Senator Amosun shamefully dropped the ball in his assertion that the 2019 electoral victory of Prince Abiodun was rigged even after the said election was judicially validated right up to the highest court of the land.
“The revolt of the people of Ogun State to this attempt to play God by a mere mortal was what saw to the surprise emergence of Prince Abiodun as the arrow head of a democratic struggle fully supported by genuine democrats in Ogun State. Our party, APC, saw through the anti- democratic tendencies of their then governor and rightly threw their weight behind the people of Ogun State with Prince Abiodun emerging as the governor with a majority votes against Senator Amosun’s acolyte, Hon Adekunle Akinlade foisted on misguided APC members in the race under another party, Allied Peoples Movement, APM.
“To the glory of God, Governor Dapo Abiodun has discharged and is discharging his role as governor creditably to all sections of the state in contrast to the sectional administration of Amosun in Ogun State.
“He is dutifully completing projects abandoned by Sen. Amosun while starting new ones across the three senatorial districts of the state. In the 2023 election, all genuine APC members and indeed appreciative Ogun State people enjoying infrastructure projects and other dividends of good governance of Prince Abiodun will fully support the re-election of the governor and put Amosun to shame once again in his glaring anti- party activities”, the statement partly reads.
