Amosun’s reaction, contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Opeyemi Soyombo, was in response to the position of the party through the National Publicity Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, who said the governor went overboard during the primaries
The councillors, who stated their position on Thursday, declared their support for the APC National Working Committee-backed governorship candidate for the State, Dapo Abiodun
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, gave the explanation in an interview on Wednesday
Amosun said this on Monday when he spoke with newsmen after swearing in the new chief Judge of the State, Mosunmola Dipeolu
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Otunba Dayo Adeneye, in a statement, said the malicious allegations would have been ignored, but for the general interest of the public and the good people of Ogun State.
The two governors have visited Buhari several times over the primaries in their states
Abiodun, who spoke at a political gathering that was not specified in the video where he made the allegation, said Amosun did not give him a dime to prosecute his senatorial bid, which he lost to the incumbent and representative of Ogun East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu
The resolution was arrived at after Governor Amosun had reportedly briefed the elders on all attempts made to validate the election of Hon. Abiodun Akinlade in the gubernatorial primaries in the state penultimate week
The information was contained in a statement by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena

Davido broke the news on of the latest death in his team on his Instagram handle
Kashamu had headed to the Court, which is the court of last jurisdiction for senatorial election, after the Ogun State Elections Petitions Tribunal ruled in favour of Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the tribunal, chaired by Justice Tobi Ebiowel, had ordered for rerun in 110 polling units within Ogun East Senatorial District
Abiodun said: “Our people knew the social, political, economic, cultural, and even religious position and marks of our senatorial district in Nigeria, they knew the right and befitting candidate they voted for. My victory at the Tribunal, is therefore, the victory of the people of Ogun East Senatorial District, our party members and coordinators who worked tirelessly
But we have since discovered that it is desperate politicians envious of Abiodun’s rising profile, who have deployed a Pull Him Down programme using the undiscerning. Instead of focussing on winning the primary election of Ogun East Senatorial District slated for next month, jittery opponents have resorted to malicious falsehood through a desperate mudslinging campaign
