Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has fired back at his predecessor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, for saying he would not support his second-term ambition.

Despite being a sitting Senator of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Amosun had, in an interview with BBC News Yoruba, said he would not work for the APC during the governorship election in Ogun, even though he would support the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Amosun said he is behind Barr. Biyi Otegbeye of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

Reacting, Abiodun said Amosun would fail “in his anti-party politics” aimed to scuttle his reelection bid in 2023.

While saying Amosun was playing “dirty politics” by declaring openly to work for the emergence of a candidate of another party, Abiodun said the former governor “will fall once again as he did in the 2019 governorship election.”

Abiodun, who spoke at a meeting with members of the Nigeria Automobile Technicians Association (NATA) at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, described Amosun’s words as “the empty threat of a falling man,” boasting that “my second term is already ordained by God ”


“The same thing that person (Amosun) did in 2019 and failed woefully, even when he was still the governor of the state, he is now preparing to fail again and even fall down.

“We are waving goodbye to him now, he is not even a candidate of any political party; he is nothing and he is saying he will stop a governor that God has ordained. He will definitely fail again by the grace of God,” Abiodun stated.
