AMOSUN TO OSHIOMHOLE: YOU’RE GUILTY OF INJUSTICE

Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun has accused the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC),  Comrade Adams Oshiomhole,  of being guilty of injustice
The governor was reacting to Oshiomhole’s statement,  widely reported in the media on Wednesday,  that he would not sell his conscience to hold on to the position of national chairman.
In a statement signed by Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Otunba Adedayo Adeneye, Amosun said although he was not expecting the APC national chairman to sell his conscience, ”but the least we expect of him is to abide by the rules and guidelines of the APC”


He added: ”Oshiomhole knows, as we know, that in the  instance of the last primaries in Ogun State, he has fallen short of the minimum standards of justice, equity and fairness. The resort to  hiding under the false claims about “conscience and integrity” is cheap.
“Oshiomhole knows that there were no other gubernatorial primaries  in Ogun State other than the one that produced Hon. Adekunle  Akinlade as candidate. He knows that the primaries into national and  legislative offices were won hundred per cent by those declared  winner by the panel he sent to Ogun State to oversee the exercise.
”He  knows that the shenanigan of unknown court injunctions, unknown  appeal panels and all sorts unleashed on the process by him and his  cohorts are premeditated schemes executed to deny the members of  the APC their true choice of candidates in the elections. Our  consolation lies in the fact that in the fullness of time, what remains unknown to the public will become bare and everyone will see  Oshiomhole and his co-travellers for who they are.
“In his conduct, Oshiomhole has exhibited disdain for the interest of the  APC and that of the National Leader of the party, President  Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor said he  remains committed to his  convictions about President Buhari and” nothing in the shenanigan of the primaries will change that”.
“Finally, Oshiomhole’s claim that only three state governors are  aggrieved about the conduct of the primaries flies in the face of the nation-wide outcry that remains loud, trailing the exercise several  weeks after.
”We remind him that in any case, justice is not dependent  on the number of whom it has been denied. Injustice to one is 
injustice to all. The overwhelming majority of members of the APC in  Ogun State remain unshaken in their rejection of the gangsterism that  has been visited on them in the conduct of the primaries.
”They remain  resolved that the attempt to hand over their state and their patrimony  to a rapacious gang of expansionists in the South West will be resisted,  not only by members of the APC but by the entire people of Ogun State  who are too enlightened to tolerate such abomination”, he stated.
