Plot to unseat Amosun, wishful thinking – APC


The All Progressives Congress in Ogun State has described as wishful thinking the plot by the opposition to defeat it in the coming election.

This is coming against the background of a purported plan by both the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party in the state to merge to confront the ruling party.

President Jonathan was reported to have endorsed a work arrangement between PDP and LP aimed at shoring up the chances of the former to produce the next governor of the state.

However APC in a statement by its publicity secretary in the state, Sola Lawal, dismissed the plot, saying it would not succeed.

According to the APC, existing chaotic internal dynamics within the two opposition parties would end up frustrating any effort at any such “unholy gang up”.

The party further stated that both PDP and LP had always worked together in the state adding that such scenario has never produced any worthwhile result for them.

He said, “In 2011 all the present members of PDP and LP in Ogun State were all in PDP with only a sprinkling of them in PPN, yet defunct ACN, a precursor to APC, trounced them.

“Without the executive power of government in its hands the APC pummelled the combined forces of the opposition.

“Now consider how much easier it will be with the superlative performance of the Amosun administration to send the send them to their electoral grave.”

The party likened the gang up against Amosun to that between the fraudster and the thief against the owner of the property.
