One of the leading governorship aspirants in Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun has boasted that he would defeat Governor Ibikunle Amosun in the battle for the Ogun West senatorial seat.

He stated this at his home in Iperu-Remo while hosting his ward and local government coordinators to sensitise them on the ongoing continuous membership registration of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Prince Abiodun described the recent actions of Governor Amosun on the APC primaries as a poorly scripted dramatic fiction.

He urged his supporters to stand firm and be steadfast in their support for him, adding that victory would be theirs.

“We are going to have a direct primary as suggested by the National Working Committee of our great party and we shall win,” he stated.

The meeting attracted several notable party leaders from the three senatorial districts of the state.

One of the leaders who spoke at the meeting, Hon. Bode Mustapha, the Bobagunwa of Egba land and also the Chairman of the NDIC said that he and others were at the meeting in solidarity with the aspirations of Prince Dapo Abiodun and the yearnings of the people of Ogun State for improved leadership.

Hon. Mustapha who was the Director General of Amosun’s re-election campaign in 2015 informed the party members that the alleged “consensus” gubernatorial candidate presented by Governor Amosun ”is a farce because it was unilaterally done by the governor against the spirit and letter of true democracy.”

In conclusion, Mustapha said Abiodun remains the most credible and most competent candidate to take Ogun State to greater heights and consolidate on what has been achieved so far.
