One of the core layalists of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr Femi Majekodunmi, has predicted that the adopted political party of Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, the Allied People’s Movement, will lose the March 9 governorship election in the state.
Majekodunmi, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in the state, also predicted the same fate for the African Democratic Congress and the Social Democratic Party in the coming election in the state.
He stated this during an interactive session with newsmen on Saturday in Abeokuta, the state capital.
He claimed that only two political parties—the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party—were seriously in contention in the state.
He, however, predicted that the APC governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun, and all the APC candidates for the state House of Assembly would win the March 9 elections.
According to him, the results of the last presidential and National Assembly elections had shown that only the APC and the PDP were in contention in the race.
He noted, “The other parties are either helplessly weak or actually dead as they cannot fly again nationally and in Ogun State in particular.
“It is now clear that we have only two political parties left in the race in our dear state—the APC and the PDP—with the other parties— African Democratic Congress, Action Democratic Party, Allied Progressives Movement, Social Democratic Party, among—others not flying at all.”
The Baagbile of Egbaland, however, congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on their reelection.
He said their victory at the poll was well deserved and a triumph of democracy.
As Mr. President’s mandate is renewed
He added that the victory of the President and the vice president affirmed the trust that Nigerians had in them to take the country to the next level.
He commended the people of Ogun State for supporting Buhari and Osinbajo with their votes.
He urged the people of the state to continue to support the party and vote massively for Abiodun and all APC candidates in the coming elections.
“My appeal is for the people of the state to repeat what they did on February 23 on March 9 by voting for the APC all the way and ensure that Prince Dapo Abiodun becomes the next governor of Ogun State while the candidates of the party (APC) are elected into the state House of Assembly.”
