Dapo Abiodun must be removed – Amosun

Abiodun and Amosun

The war between Governor Dapo Abiodun and his predecessor, Ibikunle Amosun, is far from being over as the latter has said that he will do everything possible to stop his second term bid.

Both are in the same All Progressives Congress but there is no love lost between them.

Amosun was so much against Abiodun’s candidacy in 2019 that he sponsored another candidate, Adekunle Akinlade, against him.

Speaking in Abeokuta on Friday, while receiving an award from the Abeokuta Club, which is marking its 50th anniversary, Amosun said Abiodun must be removed.


He told journalists: “Just wait, very soon, you will hear where we are going next. Clearly, you know my stand, and my stand is my stand. I am not supporting this administration that is there now. He must be removed.”

Amosun also claimedthat the 2019 governorship election in the state was rigged to favour the incumbent governor.

He added that he had moved on because those who orchestrated the rigging had apologised to him.

Amosun said, “During the last election, thank God, Chief Osoba is here, I have said it, we won convincingly. They rigged, rigged, and ended up with 19,000.

“Some of them came to apologise to me. I can be mentioning names. We won that election. But I have moved on.

“We did our work. We will continue to do what we have to do. God will be with all of us.”
