Daily Trust - - POLITICS - By Is­mail Mu­dashir

Gov­er­nor Ibikunle Amo­sun of Ogun State, yes­ter­day, met with Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.

Amo­sun who ar­rived at the State House around 2.50pm left around 4pm af­ter a closed door meet­ing with the pres­i­dent.

Daily Trust re­ports that the gov­er­nor is one of the APC stake­hold­ers who were call­ing for the sack of Osh­iom­hole over the just con­cluded pri­maries amidst spec­u­la­tions that some gov­er­nors were among those in­stru­men­tal to the re­cent de­vel­op­ments around the PAC chair­man.

Re­spond­ing to ques­tion from news­men af­ter the meet­ing on the grilling of Osh­iom­hole by the DSS, Amo­sun said: “I think you are prob­a­bly giv­ing me an over­sight role and I am not a se­cu­rity per­son, so clearly I think that ques­tion will not be for me.

“I don’t have to hide un­der a fin­ger to fight. If there is need for me to put my views across, you know me by now that I will do it,” he said.
