Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state has denied reports that he was planning to dump the ruling-All Progressives Congress on account of his displeasure with the conduct of the state primaries.
Amosun said the news report is a figment of imagination of the writer(s), adding that he could not be expected to quit a house he jointly built with other patriots.
This was revealed in a press statement signed by Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Otunba Dayo Adeneye.
“It is true that enormous pressure was brought to bear on Governor Amosun to move to another party because of the glaring injustice meted out to some party members at the recent primaries, but the governor maintained his stand that he would not decamp, especially on account of President Muhammadu Buhari, whose judgement and sense of justice, as the leader of the party, he cherishes and values immensely.
“For those who know Amosun over the years, his struggles are usually not about his own person but equity, justice and fairness for all, especially the downtrodden masses. President Buhari represents this spirit and Amosun will stand by him and with him at all times,” the statement said.
