Our attention has been drawn to a story making the rounds which suggests that 26 lawmakers have defected from Ogun All Progressives Congress to APM. This is pure propaganda and outright falsehood meant to hoodwink the polity and cause confusion.
The said defectors are some (not all) of the State House of Assembly aspirants who were on ‘the consensus list’, drafted by Mr. Governor himself before the APC primary elections. They are not serving lawmakers as portrayed by the online news medium.
We can say, without fear of contradiction, that some of the aspirants within the Governor’s political fold have expressed their displeasure with the anti-party moves being made by Governor Amosun and their position invalidates the content of the news report being referenced.
We hereby call on our supporters, party members and the general public to disregard this misinformation.
We are buoyed by the very successful ‘family meeting’ of the state chapter of our great party which was held in Abeokuta today. And we are keeping our eyes firmly on the ball: success at the polls for President Muhammadu Buhari, our governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun and all our party’s flag bearers.
Prince Segun Adesegun Director General, Dapo Abiodun Campaign Organization.
