Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former governor Olusegun Osoba, of being the brains behind the alleged fraudulent APC governorship primary that produced Dapo Abiodun as the state’s governorship candidate of the party.

In the same vein, he accused the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, of conniving with Tinubu and Osoba, to ensure Abiodun remains 2019 governorship candidate of APC, having allegedly concocted the fake governorship primary poll results presented to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

The governor levelled these allegations against the trio, shortly after the swearing in ceremony of the new Chief Judge of the state, Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, yesterday, in Abeokuta.

Amosun said the alleged silence of Tinubu and Osoba on the political imbroglio smacks of their alleged involvement in the electoral fraud.

He, however, challenged the two APC national leaders to come out from their shells and rebut the allegations, asking them to be courageous enough and engage him directly, instead of hiding behind a finger.

He said: “The president (Muhammadu Buhari) knew there was no election in Ogun State. He knows they just went to Lagos, wrote all results, and what they did is fraud. If the NWC or the national chairman said there was any election in Ogun State, it was all fraud. That is what I said.”

Meanwhile, some councillors elected on the APC platform in the state, yesterday, stormed the Oke Mosan’s governor’s office on a peaceful protest, demanding the party’s NWC to recognise the candidacy of the consensus candidate of the Yewa Elders Council, Adekunle Akinlade.

The councillors, armed with placards with various inscriptions, converged on the Arcade Ground within the state secretariat, Abeokuta, at about 10:00 a.m.
