Amosun perfects defection plans, plants top aides in DPP

The crisis in the All Progressives Congress over its primaries may worsen in a matter of days as there are strong indications that the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, is set to defect to the Democratic Peoples Party.

Investigations by SUNDAY PUNCH revealed that Amosun had already positioned his close allies and top government officials in the state in the DPP to contest against the candidates of the ruling party.

Findings by The PUNCH correspondents indicated that the officials and aides would be eventually unveiled as the candidates of the DPP in the guise of “consensus on or before December.”

A reliable APC source, who claimed to be fully involved in the governor’s plans, informed SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday that the officials would move ahead of him before Amosun would eventually join them.
