Count me out of Oshiomole’s travails, says Amosun after meeting with Buhari

143

The governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, says he wants no part of Adams Oshiomhole’s freak show, as he continues to throw jabs at the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress.

 

The two have battled through sound bites for the past week, with Amosun on Thursday saying he was not behind the chairman’s ordeal with the DSS.

 

“I think you are probably giving me an oversight role and I am not a security person, so clearly I think that question will not be for me. I don’t have to hide under a finger to fight. If there is need for me to put my views across, you know me by now that I will do it.”

 

Asked to comment on the report that the chairman, must have fled the country, Amosun said, “I have told you those things are beyond my pedigree and you are asking me questions that I am not well suited for. The one that I have to talk about we have said it loud and clear that it doesn’t event need adding anything.”

Some governors, it was gathered, instigated Oshiomhole’s interrogation by the DSS for hours last Sunday. A key aim of the interrogation, was for Oshiomhole to resign.

This cycle’s APC divide looks wider and deeper than any divide since its formation.

Finger of guilt is already being pointed at the national chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for conducting and supervising primary elections that were shoddy, insincere and not free from bias.

Governors, ministers and legislators countrywide are largely, as reported, dissatisfied over the conduct and outcomes of the primary elections.   Influential voices in the party circles are attacking Oshiomhole more and more loudly.
Due process was reportedly violated in most primaries, thus precipitating a rash of protests that point in the direction of anarchy in the build up to the 2019 general election.
