The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, says his political camp will not surrender the state to those hoping to reap where they did not sow.
The governor said this while addressing the state All Progressives Congress leaders and scores of supporters who had converged on the MTR Hall, Ibara, Abeokuta, waiting to receive the electoral committee panel from the party’s headquarters in Abuja.
The governor was making a veiled reference to the other five APC governorship aspirants, who were contesting against the party’s consensus candidate, Adekunle Akinlade
Also reacting to the claims by the five governorship aspirants that their supporters were being issued death threats and also being intimidated, the governor said nobody was after anybody’s life.
He noted that they were merely afraid of their own shadows, urging his supporters and that of the party’s consensus candidate, Akinlade, to remain focused and be prepared for the governorship primary anytime it might come up.
Amosun, who momentarily left the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, the venue of this year’s Independence anniversary celebration after leading some traditional rulers and state officials to cut fifty eighth Independence anniversary cake, for the MTR Hall to address his supporters.
