Dapo Abiodun

Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade

It has been intrigues and confusion galore in Ogun APC as those twin maladies have covered what should have just been a straightforward Primary to pick or chose the Governorship flag bearer of the party for the state. Conflicting reports have filled the air and it is obvious from all the happenings that the party itself is super confused and that does not augur well for it in anyway or manner.

First one of those that was supposed to have contested the Primary in the person of Jimi Lawal claims categorically that no primary whatsoever took place at all, that he was shocked that results were later announced and the winner declared as Akinlade.

The beginning of the confusion began with utter violence on 2 occasions, when supporters of 2 of the aspirants, that’s the supporters of oil magnate, Dapo Abiodun, who is the owner of Heyden Oil clashed with the supporters of Hon. Adekunle Abdulkabir Akinlade, who is the Governor’s outright and preferred candidate. Guns and other weapons were freely used which ensured pandemonium and the meeting was canceled.

So after the gathering were dispersed for the sake of peace, so as to all meet again to agree on how the primary must go, the only thing to happen afterwards was the declaration by 2 different/parallel camps that their candidates have won. First the state party structure/hierarchy which is totally skewed towards the Governor of state, in the person of Senator Ibikunle Amosun, declared that Adekunle A. Akinlade had won!; Then afterwards, the party NWC which normally should be the highest ruling organ and arbiter to declare who the candidate should be, said it was Dapo Abiodun. And so people thought that was done and dusted. But alas no! There was still more confusion and intrigue in the offing!

So it was actually announced that Dapo Abiodun had carried the day and then a list was released with his name amongst the 24 who had won their various primaries, only for a change to later happen again claiming it was again Akinlade, after some Governors had met with the President of the Country, President Muhammadu Buhari.

So please APC who once and for all is the choice of the party? Dapo Abiodun or Hon. Adekunle Abdulkabir Akinlade?

  1. "Then afterwards, the party NWC which normally should be the highest ruling organ and arbiter to declare who the candidate should be, said it was Dapo Abiodun. "

    In Ogun State the NWC is the highest ruling organ, but here in Lagos it was APC Lagos. How convienet?? The God of Ambode is not sleeping. Confused party!!Jagajaga country!!!

  2. At least that dictator in Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun has been throughly disgraced. Very nasty man. Ogun people are so tired of him. His guy was not picked. Boda jakujaku.
