Release video where I castigated Tinubu – Amosun dares ‘traitors’

Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun on Friday in Abeokuta said he knows those who would not be considered as governor after his tenure.

Amsoun, who spoke in reaction to an alleged audio recording from a group loyal to a governorship aspirant
in the All progressives Congress, APC, denied denigrating a party leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as alleged.

At a caucus meeting which had Ogun State members of National Assembly and APC executive council members in attendance, Amosun recalled that Tinubu stood by him and cannot, therefore, repay him with evil.

In the recording, the governor was said to have disparaged Tinubu and allegedly boasted that the former Lagos governor would be disgraced before 2019.

In his explanation, Amosun said: “What happened was that we wanted to have a parliamentary caucus. And we said we would be having it quarterly; but we discovered that our commissioners were not there and the elders of the party too must be there.

“It wasn’t our normal meeting; it was just the parliamentary caucus meeting. If there are cowards or traitors somewhere trying to record or do any other thing, those people can not do anything.

“But let me say this — and I have been saying it all the time — that we might not be able to say clearly now who becomes the next governor; but we know those who will not be governor.

“I know that at the appropriate time, we would get our people together and we would say, ‘this is your son/daughter;’ and we would pick and whosoever we pick is going to become governor.
“By the way, I say it all the time that Asiwaju (Bola Tinubu) stood by me when I needed him. I have ways of reaching Asiwaju, although he did not give me any money, but, my dad will say that a helper must not be disappointed.”
He challenged those who he called ‘traitors and cowards’ to come out with the video of the meeting.
He added that seven governorship aspirants in the party had approached him to take over from him, but he had told them that there was no governor among them.
“Those who are jumping around are just wasting their money,” Amosun said.
