Emerging details from the political circles in Ogun state have it that the hardcore loyalists of former governor Ibikunle Amosun are unhappy.
This development is attributed to recent happening at the national level of their party, the All Progressives Congress.
Governor Dapo Abiodun has been appointed into a key position in one of the vital committees handling the members’ registration and revalidation exercise of the ruling party.
Abiodun has been named the vice-chairman of the mobilization and sensitization committee.
Societynow.ng gathered that the development is being interpreted as putting the governor into a key position to “influence” the outcome of who is what on the APC register in Ogun state.
“Mobilization” for the members’ registration and revalidation exercise is seen as very vital.
Dapo Abiodun and Ibikunle Amosun are engulfed in an intense power struggle to determine who controls the APC in Ogun state, especially as the former governor’s supporters that pulled out to work against Abiodun’s election in the 2019 general election seek a return.
The supremacy tussle has resulted in parallel factions of the APC in Ogun state.
After a series of victories by Amosun with getting federal appointments for his loyalists, Dapo Abiodun appears to have turned the tide with recognition of his faction of the APC by the national leadership of the APC and recent appointment as giving the other side sleepless nights among other things.
