Oshimhole stated this on Friday in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the state of affairs of the party in Rivers, Ogun and Imo States following issues arising from the party’s congresses and governorship primaries

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 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

While the state chairman of the party, Chief Derin Adebiyi, declared the House of Representatives member Adekunle Akinlade as the winner, the electoral panel sent by the National Working Committee declared oil mogul, Prince Dapo Abiodun the winner.

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
