Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state has described the state APC members calling for the cancellation of the recent party’s non-elective congress in the state, as confused and frustrated.
Amosun also insisted on campaigning for APC candidate from Yewa axis for the Ogun State 2019 governorship race.
Some of the aggrieved leaders of the Osoba APC faction last week, had staged protests to the APC National Secretariat in Abuja, during which they called for the cancellation of the results of the congress.
Chairman of the party’s Ogun Central senatorial district, Kunle Adesina, during the protest, accused Governor Amosun of not allowing members who are perceived not loyal to him, to participate in the congress.
But Amosun speaking on Tuesday at the APC State Secretariat in Abeokuta, dismissed the allegations, saying that all party members were carried along before the date of the congress in the state was announced.
At the meeting were APC top leaders in the state, including the speaker of the House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi, deputy governor Yetunde Onanuga, APC National Financial secretary, Alhaji Tajudeen Bello, and the state APC chairman, Alhaji Tajudeen Lemboye.
Amosun said that none of the aggrieved APC members submitted petition to the APC national appeal committee which visited the state two days after the congress.
Meanwhile, Amosun said he will begin campaigning for the APC governorship candidate for the 2019 poll as from March 2018.
Amosun however clarified that he has not adopted any APC aspirant for the 2019 governorship race.
