APM’s Akinlade, Amosun’s Supporters Return to APC in Ogun


The governorsh­ip candidate of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) in Ogun State during the March 9 general elections, AbdulKabir Akinlade, and other supporters of the former governor of the state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, yesterday returned to the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC).

Akinlade, who announced his return to the APC at a stakeholde­rs’ meeting held at the APM Secretaria­t in Abeokuta, also directed his supporters to return to the “pre-October 2018 APC.”

He explained that the decision to return to APC was taken during a stakeholde­rs’ meeting of leaders and elders of Ogun APC yesterday.

According to Akinlade, everybody who contested the 2019 elections on the platform of APM has been directed to bury their grievances and return to the fold.

He recalled that it was the struggle to actualise his mandate and redress the injustice allegedly meted out to him and his supporters that made him to seek for an alternativ­e platform.

Akinlade urged his supporters to set their grievances aside and display the same courage and high sense of responsibi­lity that kept them on the course of justice through the last 15 months.

He, however, declared that the judgment of the Supreme Court on the Ogun governorsh­ip election delivered on Wednesday fell short of his expectatio­n and that of his supporters.
