The Governor of Ogun state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has started sounding tough over the Governorship brouhaha in the state when he vehemently and openly stated amidst jubilant followers of his “No retreat no surrender”.
The Governor said his camp was ready for the Governorship primaries wherever and whenever the NWC or representatives are ready to conduct it, saying he believed they would have a landslide victory over their opponents, ” we are stronger and more organized than them. We have the number and so wherever and whenever they want to conduct it we are ready and we will defeat them flatly”, he stressed.
Said he, ” they are afraid of loosing to us that is why they have been postponing, postponing and postponing. They have run to their people to lobby them to help them perpetrate some rigging”.
He charged his loyalists to be up and doing and ensure they work assiduously to win the primaries in all their wards and local governments, warning them to ensure that their opponents did not get a vote in their various wards. ” We are adopting operation win your ward”, Amosun confidently declared.
According to him, their opponents have resulted to blackmailing them because the heat is on them by alleging that some People are after their lives when in actually fact no one had their time. “If they feel they can win by blackmailing us they have failed”, he stressed. Governor Amosun said he would not buy votes but work diligently and also encourage his people to work ceaselessly to win their areas. ” I’m confident that by the end of the primaries AbdulKadiri Kunle Akinlade would be victorious and go ahead to be the next Governor of the state”, he boasted
