Osinbajo ‘didn’t influence’ Ogun APC primary

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is not responsible for the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun state, according to an associate of the vice-president.

The Ogun chapter of the ruling party is currently engulfed in a crisis over the governorship primary election.

While Ibikunle Amosun, the governor, backed Abiodun Akinlade, who was announced winner of a parallel primary conducted by the state chapter of the party, the national working committee (NWC) of the APC declared Dapo Abiodun as the ruling party candidate for 2019 election.

Iyabo Anisulowo, a former senator, had accused the vice-president and Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the APC, of influencing the choice of the governorship candidate of the party in the state.

But the associate described the allegation as nothing more than a smear campaign.

“There is no iota of truth in her allegations. With no speck of proof, it is quite obvious that Anisulowo ungracious comments were simply made to disparage the stellar personality of the vice-president,” he said.

“It must be stated unequivocally that the vice-president is supremely focused on national issues and how to move the country forward, to be drawn into these political shenanigans. The vice-president is not remotely involved in the issue of who emerges as the APC governorship candidate in Ogun state nor does he care whose ox is gored. Osinbajo would rather, as a matter of his principle and integrity, lend his support to a candidate that eventually gets the nod of the party.

“Because the vice-president hails from the same state as Ibikunle Amosun, Ogun state governor, does not, in any way, lend credence to their baseless claims.”
