Ogun 2019: Too many hands for Amosun’s job

Ogun State governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun
At the last count, 19 aspirants have already signified interest to contest Ogun State’s number one seat on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).Interestingly, the number is swelling on a daily basis with new entrants getting into the race, giving the electorate a confusing but wide range of options. This is a situation that could pose headache when it comes to sorting pretenders from real men.

On the list are: Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi, Hon. Iziak Abiodun Akinlade, Hon. Kunle Akinlade, Sen. Gbolahan Dada, Chief Dapo Abiodun, Biyi Otegbeye, Chief Tolu Odebiyi, Hon. Kola Lawal, Rotimi Rahman, Mrs. Ronke Sokefun and Mayokun Christopher Ilo, all from Ogun West Senatorial District.

Those from Ogun East include: Jimi Lawal, Basorun Muyiwa Oladipo, Otunba Bimbo Ashiru, Sen. Adegbenka Kaka, Sen. Lekan Mustapha, Hon. Remmy Hassan, and Sen. Olorunnibe Mamora, while Engr. Adebayo David, hails from the central. With this development, aside the issue of zoning that appears partly resolved, the long list of contenders, The Guardian learnt might compromise the much needed cohesion necessary for the APC to retain the state, as the party stands the risk of being polarised
