share on:

ABEOKUTA – Dapo Abiodun, an Ogun State gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), has faulted the plan by the leadership of the party in the state to adopt indirect primary mode to nominate aspirants for the 2019 election.

This is coming less than 24 hours after a stakeholders’ meeting of the party in Ogun State unanimously adopted indirect primary mode should the proposed consensus fails.

Chairman of the party in the state, Derin Adebiyi said the meeting was called on the strength of a letter by the National Working Committee which directed the states leadership to decide on the mode of primaries suitable for each state.

But Abiodun while reacting to the meeting said proposed delegate system is an admittance of failure of Amosun’s administration.

He added that a government that is really in touch with the people would not be afraid of putting its fate in the hands of the electorate.

Abiodun said this during a consultation visit to a three term member of the House of Representatives, Isiak Abiodun Akinlade and other leaders in Owode-Yewa.

Akinlade, who lost his ambition to govern the state from 2019 to consensus arrangement earlier adopted by the state chapter pledged his support to Abiodun’s ambition.

He described Abiodun as a selfless individual who shares his wealth without discrimination.

He recalled that the business mogul’s generosity was instrumental to his election as the member representing Yewa-South/Ipokia Federal constituency in the House of Representatives in 2003.

While addressing party members in the town, Abiodun faulted governor Amosun’s self-acclaimed love for Ogun West adding that Amosun should have demonstrated that by executing meaningful projects in the axis.

He promised to prove his love to the people of Ogun West by addressing the infrastructural and human capital deficits in the senatorial district.

He also promised to create jobs for the youths through industrialization and entrepreneurial scheme.

He implored party members across the state not to give up on their clamour for direct primaries as recommended by the national leadership of the party.
