Don’t drag Obas into politics – Abiodun’s group tells Gov Amosun

The Dapo Abiodun Campaign Organisation(DACO) on Sunday advised Governor Ibikunle Amosun not to drag the revered traditional rulers in Ogun State into the  2019 politics of succession in the state, lest he desecrates their roles of fostering “unity” and “peace.”


In a statement signed by Emmanuel Ojo, DACO’s Media Director, it alleged that Governor Amosun had “hoodwinked” the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, and the Olu of Ilaro, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, into following him to Abuja to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari not to  accept Prince Dapo Abiodun, the All Progressives(APC)  Governorship candidate for 2019 election on Ogun state.

DACO claimed that the latest move being singlehandedly pursued by the governor is ” heavily laden with ulterior and selfish motive” which it said should be condemned by well – meaning people of Ogun State and abroad because of its potential to erode the place of traditional institution as symbols of unity and peace.

It also urged President Buhari to reject any moves by Amosun to make him go against the lawful and legitimate position of the APC on Abiodun as the authentic governorship candidate of the party for the 2019 polls.

“Our attention has been drawn to the latest political  antics borne out of Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s relentless desperate move to upturn the overriding wish of all Ogun APC party members, who unanimously voted for Prince Dapo Abiodun as their gubernatorial candidate.

“Governor Amosun has concluded plans to commission two highly revered Paramount Rulers from Ogun State to go and plead with President Buhari not to accept the candidature of Prince Dapo Abiodun, who is the validly elected candidate of the party.
