Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state has said he is not defecting from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), contrary to rumours.
Amosun has been rumored to be nursing an exit from the ruling party following a fallout with some members.
However, in a statement by the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Adedayo Adeneye, Amosun said he was fully in the APC.
“It is true that enormous pressure was brought to bear on Governor Amosun to move to another party, because of the glaring injustice meted out to some party members at the recent primaries,” the statement read.
“But the governor maintained his stand that he would not decamp, especially on account of President Muhammadu Buhari, whose judgment and sense of justice, as the leader of the party, he cherishes and values immensely.
“For those who know Amosun over the years, his struggles are usually not about his own person but equity, justice and fairness for all, especially the downtrodden.
“President Buhari represents this spirit and Amosun will stand by him and with him in any party at all times and at all costs.”
