- President Muhammadu Buhari and Ogun state governor Ibikunle Amosun, are holding a meeting in Aso Rock
- The meeting is believed to be aimed at resolving the internal crisis of the APC after its controversial primaries
President Muhammadu Buhari and the Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, are meeting again at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Amosun is one of the governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) aggrieved by the outcome of the party’s primary elections, Punch reports.
The party’s national working committee refused to recognise his preferred candidate for the governorship race.
The meeting was believed to be a continuation of efforts aimed at resolving the crisis that trailed the primary elections of the APC across the country.
Amosun and his counterparts, Rochas Okorocha (Imo) and Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), have been at the forefront of those campaigning for the removal of Adams Oshiomhole as the party’s national chairman for the role he allegedly played during the primary elections.
However, Amosun in an interview with State House correspondents on Thursday, November 8, denied being responsible for Oshiomhole’s reported arrest and interrogation by the Department of State Services (DSS)
Asked about claims he and Okorocha planned Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s investigation, Amosun said: “I think you are probably giving me an oversight role and I am not a security person, so clearly I think that question will not be for me.
“I don’t have to hide under a finger to fight. If there is need for me to put my views across, you know me by now that I will do it.”
