APC Stalwart and National Leader; Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and former governor of Ogun State, Aremo Segun Oshoba, are currently under fire over their alleged complicity in the questionable electoral fraud committed in Ogun State.
The Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun has accused the party stalwarts of conniving with a cabal in Lagos to forge the primary result which produced Dapo Abiodun as the Ogun State governorship candidate of the party in the coming elections. Gov. Amosun said this in an interview just after the swearing-in of the new Chief Justice of the state, Mosunmola Dipeolu in the Governor’s Office in Oke-mosan, Abeokuta.
He further stipulated that the silence of the two party stalwarts snacks of complicity in the conducted primaries. Amosun said, “The President is also aware that there was no primary conducted in Ogun State. He knows that the results were fraudulently written in Lagos.” If the National Chairman or the National Working Committee said there was an election in Ogun State, it is a fraud”.
The governor, in his statement insisted that the only primary held in the state was the one in which his candidate, Adekunle Akinlade emerged as the party’s governorship candidate. He further implied that the fact that the two party leaders decided to keep mum over the issues, shows that they are guilty of all the accusations he was heaping on them.
He added, “People at this level should be courageous enough to take a position, to come out, to come and tell us whether there was an election.
“On governorship, the day they said they did it or not, the one that we had, there was live telecast, people even witnessed it. They all came that they are changing again”.
Not long after the swearing-in of the new Chief Justice, about 200 APC councilors holding placards, staged a protest at the party’s NWC demanding that the party should recognize Adekunle Akinlade as the party’s candidate.
