Ogun NASS Members To Settle Amosun-Osoba Rift

Amosun-OsobaThe Ogun State caucus of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the National Assembly may wade into the political rift between a former governor of the state, Olusegun Osoba and the incumbent, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
Osoba, a founding father of the APC, dumped the party along with his supporters and pitched their tent with the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in the build-up to the 2015 general elections.
The former governor was reportedly angry over the hijack of the APC in the state by Amosun and the failure of the national leadership of the party to amicably resolve the rift before the polls.
However, speaking with journalists on Saturday, the lawmaker representing Ifo/Ewekoro Federal Constituency of the State in the House of Representatives, Ayodele Isiaka, noted that the differences between the two politicians was political, rather than personal.
“When I get back to Abuja, I am going to contact my colleagues in the caucus of APC and we shall look on the need to fashion out way to attend to the issue.
“The difference between them was political rather than personal. We are going to work with both of them”, Mr. Isiaka said at the site of a 7-Kilometre federal road in Ifo Local Government Area, which he is helping to repair with funds from his pocket.
According to the lawmaker, the road was not included in constituency project of the National Assembly.
Nonetheless, Isiaka promised to contact the state government to help in bringing a permanent solution to the problem.
