I Won’t Work For APC In 2023 – Amosun Declares


Former Ogun State Governor and Senator representing Ogun Central, Ibikunle Amosun, has said he would not support the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State come 2023.

Amosun said though he would work for the emergence of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu as the president of Nigeria, he would not support other party candidates in Ogun State.

The former Governor made this known in an interview with BBC News Yoruba on Monday.

Asked about how the crisis rocking the APC in Ogun and other states would not affect the chances of Tinubu at the poll, Amosun posited that all the factions within the Ogun APC are in support of Tinubu and will all work for his victory.

“For the presidential election, I can assure you, all the APC factions in Ogun are working for the presidential candidate of the APC. But for the governorship race, we are not together. I and my supporters are not supporting the APC,” he said.

“I am not hiding it, for the presidential election, we are with the APC. But for the governorship, I am not doing it secretly, I will not support the APC,” he emphasised.

Asked to mention who he will support for governor in Ogun and the party, Amosun said: “It is Biyi Otegbeye. ADC is the party.”
