Ibikunle Amosun, a former governor of Ogun State, responded to the conflict engulfing the state’s APC ahead of the general elections in 2023.


There have been rumors that some disgruntled party members plan to leave the organization.


However, Amosun insisted that he supports both President Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, during a meeting with party leaders held at his home in Ibara.


The lawmaker representing Ogun central senatorial district further stated that those planning to dump the party are free to test their popularity elsewhere


Amosun who was represented at the meeting by the faction’s APC Chairman, Derin Adebiyi, however, warned the aggrieved members not to negotiate with his name.


According to Daily Post, sources at the meeting quoted Adebiyi as saying, “He (Amosun) has sent us to you that he stands with Tinubu, he is loyal to APC. He stands with President Muhammadu Buhari and by the grace of God, on May 29, 2023, he will follow him to Daura and say Alhamdulilah.

“If there is any other step to be taken, it will be a collective decision.

“Now, he said we should tell all of you that whoever loves him and believes in him with all his explanations, such person should stay with him and that he is not angry with anybody.


“Whoever wants to contest on another platform is free to contest, but should not use the name of this group or that of SIA to negotiate. This is what Amosun is saying. This is what he has asked us to tell you.”
