2019: Amosun’s Anointed Candidate Dares Oshiomhole
“Oshiomhole is the one that is carrying political partisanship to a ridiculous level”, the governorship candidate of Allied People’s Movement in Ogun State, Abdulkabir Akinlade said on Sunday.
The governorship candidate dared the National Chairman of the All Progressives congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole to go ahead and report him to the independent National Electoral Commission.
Oshiomhole said on Friday while answering questions on TVC that he would report the preferred governorship candidate of the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha to INEC.
The campaign’s Director-General, Sarafa Ishola spoke on behalf of Akinlade urging Oshiomhole to seek the help of the APC national legal adviser for proper interpretation of their actions.
He said, “He (Oshiomhole) should call his national legal adviser to seek the interpretation of our action.
“There is no law that says we cannot endorse a candidate that is not our candidate. We can endorse a candidate that is not our party’s candidate.
“In APM, our state and Nigeria are more important to us than political party. Oshiomhole is the one that is carrying political partisanship to a ridiculous level.
“Nigeria is more important. Ogun State is also more important to us than political parties. Political parties are just platforms to actualise ambitions.
“If we see any good candidate we will endorse him. We have the constitutional right to do that.”
