The Ogun State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has described as wishful thinking, the plot by the opposition to defeat it in the 2015 general election.
The party was reacting to the report that both the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party in the state have ganged up to defeat the ruling party in the state in next year’s election.
It was learnt that President Goodluck Jonathan endorsed a work arrangement between PDP and LP aimed at shoring up the chances of the former to produce the next governor of the state.
However, the ruling APC in a statement by its publicity secretary in the state, Mr Sola Lawal, dismissed the plot, saying it would not succeed.
According to Lawal, existing chaotic internal dynamics within the two opposition parties would end up frustrating any effort at any such “unholy gang up”.
The party further stated that both PDP and LP had always worked together in the state adding that such scenario has never produced any worthwhile result for them.
He said, “In 2011 all the present members of PDP and LP in Ogun State were all in PDP with only a sprinkling of them in PPN, yet defunct ACN, a precursor to APC, trounced them.
“Without the executive power of government in its hands the APC pummeled the combined forces of the opposition.
“Now consider how much easier it will be with the superlative performance of the Amosun administration to send the send them to their electoral grave”.
APC likened the gang up against Amosun to that between the fraudster and the thief against the owner of the property.
