Amosun Dispels Defection Rumour, Says, “I Stand With Buhari“

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has dispelled the rumours making the rounds that he plans to defect from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) following the disputed party primaries in the state.

In a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Adedayo Adeneye, and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta on Tuesday, Amosun described the news report in a section of the media as false.

The governor reiterated his support for President Muhammadu Buhari, saying he cherished his judgement and sense of justice as leader of the ruling party.

The statement reads: “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 judgment 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 in any party at all times and at all costs.”
