I remain in APC, Amosun reacts as Buni Rejects Loyalists’ Factional Exco

Published

Twenty-four hours after the All Progressives Congress inaugurated states’ chairmen of the party including Ogun State, the former governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has calmed the nerves of his loyalists.
Amosun on Friday broke his silence on the crisis rocking the APC in the state, saying victory was certain and that he remained in the APC.
Amosun’s statement came following the inauguration of Yemi Sanusi as the Chairman of the APC in Ogun State, as against Derin Adebiyi who is his candidate for the chairmanship seat.
Sanusi is backed by Governor Dapo Abiodun who is at loggerheads with Amosun over the party’s structure.
The Governor Mai Bala Buni-led APC caretaker committee had on Thursday inaugurated the Chairmen of the APC across the States of the Federation.
At the inauguration, the national leadership recognised the Sanusi faction loyal to Abiodun.
Both Abiodun and Amosun factions had on October 16 conducted parallel state congresses to elect party officials.
While Sanusi emerged winner for the Abiodun group, Adebiyi was elected by Amosun loyalists.
Contrary to the expectation of some of his loyalists that Amosun would announce his defection, the former governor said he remains in the APC.
Amosun, in a terse message on Friday morning, appreciated his followers for their steadfastness.
Amosun informed them that the journey continues, adding that victory is certain by God’s grace.
He stated “To all our party faithfuls, thank you for your steadfastness. We are APC. APC is ours. The journey continues. Victory is certain by God’s grace. On APC we stand. Thank you and well done to all of you.”

“The issue that we have is that we are not producing enough. We are not productive. Maybe it may be part of the problem, we want to have value for what is being shared but our problem is productivity.

“How much are those LGAs generating within their domains? Can they survive without handouts from Abuja? Handouts from Abuja, is that the way to go? Is it sustainable?” -Governor Seyi Makinde, Oyo At Audience With NUJ

Kashim Shettima has warned Nigerians against hauling curses on the country as a result of the hardship, stating that it would be impossible for abusers to benefit from a system they have abused.

He stated that there are a lot of opportunities in Nigeria and therefore urged Nigerians to count their blessings instead of putting the country down through words.

In his words, “Let us count our blessings. Let us not put our country down.

He emphasized that, “It cannot be tales of woes all the time. As bad as things are today and with all the inflation, there are sectors that are doing incredibly well. The health sector is doing very well.

The petroleum sector is doing well. The Agric sector is doing well, for those who are planting cassava.

“People buy it there on the farm. I am not saying that things are easy. The government has come with very tough reforms.

“However, you have to position yourself in the reform. If you go out and say Nigeria is a shitty country, forgive my French, you are going to get shitty results.

The 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja where he is expected to pass on the torch to another leader.

The Military leaders of Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso rule out returning to ECOWAS even as President Bola Tinubu leads Heads of State of the 15-member bloc in a Summit in Abuja to persuade them to return.

“Westerners consider that we belong to them and our wealth also belongs to them. They think that they are the ones who must continue to tell us what is good for our states. This era is gone forever; our resources will remain for us and our populations,”
says Burkina Faso’s leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traoré.

“”Our people have irrevocably turned their back on ECOWAS,” Niger’s General Abdourahamane Tiani says.

“The attack on one of us will be an attack on all the other members,” insists Mali’s leader, Col. Assimi Goïta.

The trio signed a confederation treaty on Saturday, underscoring their determination to chart a joint course and exit the bloc which is urging them to return to democratic rule.
