Ogun State governor, Ibukunle Amosun maybe banking on some form of miracle in the 2019 general elections, as he has insisted on handing over to his choice candidate, Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade as his successor.
This is despite the fact that the National Working Committee (NEC) of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has submitted the name of oil mogul, Dapo Abiodun, as the Ogun State governorship candidate.
Amosun in a statement on Friday by his Commissioner for Information, Dayo Adeneye, said he is committed to supporting President Muhammadu Buhari and his party in next year’s elections.
The statement reads in part: “For the avoidance of doubt, I remain committed to our great party, APC, and I stand with and for our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I am in no doubt that come May 29, 2019, the Almighty God will make Mr President triumph and ensure that I hand over the reins of governance of our great state to the popular choice of the majority of our people, Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade.
“I restate my unwavering commitment and total support for the mandate freely and expressly given to Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade.”
