Ogun State Government has berated the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for resheduling the governorship primaries in the State.
The Government while reacting through the Secretary to the State Government, Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa , noted that Oshiomhole was scheming to impose an unpopular candidate on the party.
Adeoluwa added that the chapter has conducted its primary election on Tuesday, noting that Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s favourite, Adekunle Akinlade will win “100 times if the primaries is conducted.”
Adeoluwa said: “With all due respect, we are not known for reckless, irresponsible allegation but it appears a carefully written script is being directed by the National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“We have learnt on good authority that the national headquarters of APC is determined and desperate to force a particular candidate on the people of Ogun state. We will be ready for them, but we shall do nothing unlawful.
“In Ogun state, we shall not participate in any primary unless and until the National Working Committee will specifically write to us on a date that will not shift and agree on the mode of primary.
“We must sincerely call on our leader President Muhammadu Buhari to please call Comrade Oshiomole to order. We would not allow anybody to take us for granted.
“We hope that the whole of our country including well meaning people everywhere will help to beg Comrade Adams Oshiomhole not to set Ogun state on fire.”
