As the APC moved its Presidential campaign train to Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, there was commotion as the campaign took a different turn.
Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun ordered the pulldown of the campaign posters of the state’s APC Governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.
In a video which has since gone viral, Amosun was seen dishing out orders to people to remove posters and placards of Senator Abiodun.
“Please, I beg you, this is the vote of President Muhammadu Buhari. Don’t worry; the other one, we will resolve. You know we will resolve it. On March 2, we will resolve it. This one is for President Muhammadu Buhari…,” he said.
“Please, all of you carrying this APM, by the benevolence of the almighty God, all of you are what, APC. By March 2, all of you will turn to what, APM. All of us, whether you carry this APM, you carry anything, this February 16, it is APC.
“I have told you, the most important election is that of President Muhammadu Buhari. All of us, on Staurday, we are APC. Please repeat after me. But when it is time for March 2nd, we know what we are going to do,” Amosun was quoted as saying.
Former Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola in his bid to douse the tension said they are there for the APC and called on the party’s supporters to ignore other parties seen around the area.
Some of the party chieftains of the APC present at the Campaign were Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Olusegun Osoba, and other party bigwigs.
Recall that Amosun declared his opposition to the candidature of Ogun APC Governorship candidate, Abiodun after his candidate, Adekunle Akinlade lost in a primary election.
Akinlade has since joined APM, a party believed to be sponsored by Amosun.
