Dapo Abiodun rigged self into power, must be removed — Amosun

Ex-governor of Ogun State Senator Ibikunle Amosun has accused the incumbent Dapo Abiodun of rigging the 2019 governorship election.

“During the last election, thank God, Chief (Segun) Osoba is here, I have said it, we won convincingly. They rigged, rigged, and ended up with 19,000,” Amosun said on Friday in Abeokuta after receiving an award from the Abeokuta Club to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the association.

In 2019, Amosun supported Adekunle Akinlade who contested on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement.

But Abiodun defeated Akinlade with a margin of 19,517 votes.

Amosun said he had moved on because those who rigged the poll had apologised to him.

“Some of them came to apologise to me. I can be mentioning names. We won that election. But I have moved on.

“We did our work. We will continue to do what we have to do. God will be with all of us,” he said.

The ex-governor further told reporters outrightly that he does not want Abiodun to be re-elected.

“Well, I am happy. When you are in a place and they are telling you that you have done the work of four or five governors altogether. I feel elated. I am happy that they appreciated our little efforts.

“Just wait, very soon, you will hear where we are going next. Clearly, you know my stand, and my stand is my stand. I am not supporting this administration that is there now. He must be removed,” he said.
