Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has insisted on handing over to his preferred gubernatorial aspirant, Adekunle Akinlade.
This is despite the fact that the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has submitted the name of oil mogul, Dapo Abiodun, as the Ogun State governorship candidate to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In a statement on Friday by the state Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Adedayo Adeneye, Amosun, however, restated his commitment to supporting President Muhammadu Buhari and his party in the 2019 elections.
The governor said: “For the avoidance of doubt, I remain committed to our great party, APC, and I stand with and for our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I am in no doubt that come May 29, 2019, the Almighty God will make Mr President triumph and ensure that I hand over the reins of governance of our great state to the popular choice of the majority of our people, Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade.
“I restate my unwavering commitment and total support for the mandate freely and expressly given to Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade.”
