Ogun state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun on Monday vowed to make his anointed candidate, Abdul Kabir Akinlade his successor, disclosing that he would use everything he has to make the dream a reality.
He also declared his unalloyed support towards working for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming presidential election in 2019.
It would be recalled that Akinlade left the All Progressives Congress (APC) to Allied People’s Movement (APM) after he was denied the governorship ticket.
The Governor made the declaration in Abeokuta, the State capital while addressing hundreds of his loyalists and supporters in Abeokuta, the capital on preparation towards next year’s election.
Amosun, who blew hot over the manner at which the national leadership of APC handled the disagreement generated by the outcome of the party primaries, explained that his anointed man, Akinlade had all his “blessings to pursue the mandate freely given to him” by the people of Ogun state on any platform of his choice.
The Governor said he and his loyalists were ready to work for no other governorship candidate in the state other than Akinlade.
Amosun appealed to his loyalists to only cast their votes for Buhari “in other to be part of the South West history that enthrones Buhari for a second term of office.
Meanwhile, all the 26 house of assembly candidates loyal to Governor Ibikunle Amosun left APC for Allied People’s Movement (APM).
