ABEOKUTA – The Senator representing Ogun Central at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun, has said that the African Democratic Congress (ADC) governorship candidate, Barr. Olubiyi Otegbeye, is his candidate in 2023 poll.
The former Governor of Ogun State who disclosed this on Monday, October 10, 2022 during a BBC Yoruba interview programme however noted that he is supporting the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
His words, “I dont hide behind one finger to fight. Biyi Otegbeye is the person I am supporting and ADC is the party.
“For the presidential poll, I can assure you, both right, left and centre, we are supporting one person (Tinubu).”
The Owu-Egba born politician fondly called SIA by his teeming supporters also vowed that Governor Dapo Abiodun “must be removed from office” in 2023 because he was “rigged” into the office ab initio.
Amosun stated that the 2019 governorship election in the state was rigged to favour the incumbent governor.
He added that he had moved on because those who were behind the rigging have apologized to him.
“During the last election, thank God, Chief Osoba is here, I have said it, we won convincingly. They rigged, rigged, and ended up with 19,000 votes.
“Some of them came to apologise to me. I can’t be mentioning names. We won that election. But I have moved on,” Amosun posited.
