A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State and Baagbile of Egbaland, Dr. Femi Majekodunmi, has appealed to Governor Ibikunle Amosun, to play the role of a statesman in resolving the controversy over the gubernatorial candidate of the party in the state.
He made the appeal at the weekend while speaking with journalists in Abeokuta, the state capital.
It will be recalled that Ogun State is one of the states where the APC is having a crisis over its gubernatorial candidate with Senator Amosun insisting on his anointed preferred choice, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade as the party’s candidate while the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has submitted the name of Prince Dapo Abiodun, as the choice
of the party.
Majekodunmi said the governor who through his achievements has been regarded as the architect of modern-day Ogun State, should not make a mistake of a political decision that will consign his name into political oblivion.
According to him, the governor has served the people of the state diligently for over seven years with landmark achievements littering all over the state, stating that history will be kind to him if he allows reason to prevail and work assiduously for the victory of the party both at the state and federal levels.
He maintained that as the leader of APC in the state, he should be the father of all who is delirious of handing over government to a member of the party to continue his good works, insisting that should the governor failed to have his candidate picked as the gubernatorial candidate, his plan B in resolving the controversy should be a total reconciliation with the candidate already picked by the NWC who has publicly announced his resolve to work with the governor, concede some grey areas to him and most importantly pledge to continue his good works in the state.
