The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has accused the ruling party of planning to rig the 2019 governorship election in the state.
It has been made know that the governor is supporting Hon. Adekunle Akinlade who is from the Allied People’s Movement (APM) for governor against his own party which he accused of rigging the primary election.
He said it was an agreement made almost two years ago to give room for Ogun West which had not produced a governor since the inception of Ogun State.
The development has pitched the governor against the national leadership of the APC, although he is running for the senatorial seat in the same party.
He further said he will not back out of his support for Akinlade come what may.
Governor Amosun recently said he would not rule himself out from vying for the office of the Senate president if the opportunity presents itself in the nearest future.
Amosun made the comment while interacting with his constituents in Ewekoro local government area of the state as he seeks to represent them in the upper chamber in the 2019 general elections.
