Gov. Ibikunle Amosun dumps APC For Accord Party after rejection of his preferred candidate
Senator IBIKUNLE AMOSUN the outgoing Governor of Ogun State has allegedly dumped his party APC for another, said to be the Accord Party. This is after his proposed successor, Akinlade was rejected by the party.
His vehement opposition to his erstwhile friend-Dapo Abiodun’s Governorship ambition is surprising and a lot of people have insinuated that senator Ibikunle Amosun’s opposition to Dapo Abiodun’s ambition might have stemmed from the fact that he like most people, wouldn’t want to hand over to someone, that is perceived to be wiser and that wouldn’t ever be his puppet.
One other supposed reason for the Governor’s opposition also might be because he sees Dapo Abiodun as a paperweight electorally; how can someone who couldn’t win an election to be a Senator of a few Constitutencies, now wants to prosecute a Gubernatorial ambition which is even on a far bigger scale?
The reason however is best known to Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
