I’m Not Defecting To Accord Party, Says Amosun

Ibikunle-AmosunOgun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has dismissed speculations that he might be on his way to the Accord Party (AP).

He also stressed that he will rather run a government whose achievements are on ground for all to see than a government whose achievements are only on billboards.

Speaking at an interactive session with reporters in Abeokuta, the state capital weekend, Amosun said that he could only endear himself to people of the State by continually putting in place structures that would transform positively their socio–economic status among others and not by pasting his posters all over the place or using the state–owned radio or television station to sing the government’s praises.

He also warned employees of the state owned television station, OGTV, to jettison such unprofessional practice, which he said, was not representing him or the state well.

Governor Amosun denied that he planned to defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to Accord Party (AP) floated by a former governor of Oyo state, Senator Rashidi Ladoja.

Amosun said, “They said I was in Ibadan to see Ladoja on how I’m going to move to Accord Party because they (APC) are not going to give me ticket and I begin to wonder.

“In fact, I think the last time I met Ladoja was when (Governor Abiola) Ajimobi was burying his mother. He (Ladoja) came to greet me. Is it me that will go to another party? So, when they begin to say that, I just think it is just one politician that is using them”.
