Breaking: Amosun Backs Down, Cedes Ogun APC State Chairman To Dapo Abiodun's Camp

Information reaching us from the Ibikunle Amosun's  camp indicates that  leaders of the group met  at Sen. Amosun’s lagos residence on Wednesday,  to deliberate on the aborted reconciliation process by the National Reconciliation Committee. They were said to have agreed that it was wise to play on the side of caution so as not to repeat the 2018 quagmire that cost them the party ticket. 

A reliable source from the National HQ of APC  confirmed that due to INEC deadline for the party to formerly notify the body of its Convention date and to avert further extension of the Caretaker Committee tenure, it was imperative for the party to maintain that status quo ante should  be maintained in those states with contentious issues,   which include Ogun, Kwara, Kano and others.

In attendance during the meeting were the erstwhile APC Chairman Chief Derin Adebiyi, Chief Ojuko, Alh. Agba and Hon. Adekunle Akinlade the 2019 APM Guber candidate among others. By that directive, Gov. Dapo Abiodun’s chairmanship choice will be sworn in tomorrow at the state chairman.

Meanwhile, fillers in the State suggest that the Amosun camp is  sticking to it's guns and are determined never to have anything to do with the Gov. Dapo Abiodun faction who have been in charge since 2018.

Without mincing words, the  next three weeks and post National Convention will define the future of APC in Ogun State and the nation at large. It is indeed our hope that  Gov. Dapo Abiodun will be able to manage the ephemeral victory. 

It is no more a news  that  the Gov. Dapo Abiodun"s faction represents less than  20% of the State APC party members, despite  the huge  fortune expended by the Governor to  hijack the party from  Sen. Amosun’s 22yrs (2000-2022) well greased political machinery across Ogun State and beyond. 

Obviously, 2023 will be very interesting for keen political watchers. Analysts are skeptical and reasoned  that Gov. Dapo Abiodun should not celebrate too early because such a concession by the Sen. Amosun’s camp might be a Greek gift. 

What is clear is that the Amosun's camp will contest the APC governorship primary come August 2022. Game on they say.
