There will be ‘war’ in Ogun APC – Osoba

Osoba addressing suporters

“We should prepare for political war and not bloody war.”

The crisis in the Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, shows no sign of abating as a leader of the party and former state governor, Olusegun Osoba, vowed not to accept the decision of the headquarters of the party to recognise a parallel state executive.

Two sets of executives were elected across the various strata of the state APC as the party split into two factions. One faction is loyal to Mr. Osoba and the other to the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun.

The national leadership of the party on Thursday swore-in the chairman of the faction loyal to Mr. Amosun in Abuja; a stance, Mr. Osoba kicks against, saying it would lead to another war within the party in 2015.

Mr. Osoba said this in Abeokuta on Friday while speaking with hundreds of party supporters.

He said the party congress held by his loyalists was the authentic one having met the party’s rules and guidelines, which include payment of required fees by all contestants and production of bank tellers.

He said he wondered why the faction which failed to follow the rule of law and due process would be seen as the rightful executive.

Mr. Osoba declared that the development was no threat to him, asking his supporters to be firm and calm.

“The APC ship belongs to us all. We shall soon do away with strangers. Let us face where we are going. The fight is a political fight, it is not judicial issue. It is not free for all, we shall wait for God’s judgement,” he said.

The ex-governor asked his supporters not to be provoked to violence.
“We should prepare for political war and not bloody war. Never engage anybody in warfare. I have come here to preach peace. People’s power will determine who is who soon. Don’t entertain any fear, truth would soon prevail,” he said.

Mr. Osoba also spoke on the rumour that his faction of the APC was planning to move to the newly registered Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN.
He said he would not leave the APC as the party belonged to him and his supporters, and not to strangers; a seeming reference to the governor, who had left his former party to join the then Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, one of the parties that merged to form the APC.

The former governor said he and his members have documents to back up their claim of being the authentic APC in Ogun.
“The party says anybody with tellers is qualified for election. We have documents of the payment, so how can those who did not pay now be declared winners.
“There will be light after darkness. Let us start mobilization. How can somebody who does not pay for WAEC examination or fill form gain admission?” he asked.

He asked his members to hold regular ward, local government, and state APC meetings.
He alleged that the APC congress committee chairman was the only person that signed the report that endorsed Mr. Amosun’s faction without input of other members; and questioned how such report would be accepted by the national headquarters.
The meeting between Mr. Osoba and his supporters was concluded with the presentation of an “official car” to the chairman of the faction’s APC, Olu Agemo.

Meanwhile, the Ogun APC chairman sworn-in in Abuja, Roqeeb Adeniji, said in a statement on Saturday that the elected State Executive Committee of the party (the Amosun faction) will be inaugurated on Monday.

    Heavyweightchampion is telling u now chief osoba to come to pdp that is the only winning party in 2015 the masses have know apc as a lie lie party in the south west

  • Allayes

    Good people of Ogun State, it is a big pity that the party you thought will bring succor to you is now putting you through the same trauma that PDP put you through for several years. It is time you guys started thinking seriously about other parties now. Independent candidates would have been better, but our law makers blocked that avenue. PDP and APC have failed you, the others are not better. Any hope of coming up with a true grassroots party? It is a huge shame that this is happening in the State of the sage of all places. Remember it is your own future. All these gladiators are already richer than many states in the Federation.

    • Habib Olukayode Rahman

      It’s.impolitic of Aremo Osoba to stop whining and allow this miracle performing governor to concentrate on giving the dividends of democracy to the people of ogun state afterall ,he has had his run and nobody dictated to him nor indecorously called him names ala ” i am old enough to be Amosun’ s father as he is 56 years old and i am 75 years.To me that’s pretty insulting even given the fact that yoruba people traditionally respects our elders.

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Many thanks, Mr. Habib.

        Baba Osoba is simply refusing to accept “oba mewa, igba mewa, enikan kii lo ile aiye gbo”.

        His turn has passed, he should leave Amosu to do his own time. Inu nibi’ni lo’nyo Baba l’enu!

        We cannot have another mini-Tinubu in Ogun State. What else did leave behind in govt house that he is running after in his dotage?

        • Habib Rahman

          Thanks for your response but you see people might not like Tinubu for some reasons especially the Afenifere crowds for simply consigning them to the background because they have always enjoyed that priviledge.However,for their ignoble role of allowing themslves to be baited by OBJ’s call to be part of the mainstream politics which Tinubu was opposed to and had he followed them,the deregulation of the political parties we now have which has reduced the octopus mentality of the ruling party PDP boast that they will rule for the next 50 years regardless of performance is the reason Tinubu will remain a force .You might not have the opposition of your dream but its certainly a begining otherwise we have been saddled with the dictatorship of the ruling party and effectively under one party state.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Habib, I agree with you fully that ‘omo buruku ni ojo t’ire!”

            Despite my reservations about Tinubu, I remain committed to APC and will do my widow’s mite to make it an even better party.

            As for PDP, oh Father Lord, please perish the thought.

          • Habib Rahman

            Got you bro,we should not allow the gains recorded so far be eroded by the feeble attempts being made to whittle that currency especially with the likes of LP,UPN,SDP etc whose only concern is to wrestle and contest in the south west and lacking any national spread but doing the bidding of the ruling party,That is my worry and mark my word,there was never a rapproachment with the north politically except with the south east block and for that yorubas have been called boko haram sympathisers,how ludicrous!

  • DanYaro

    And one of the first casualties of the war will be Osoba himself – another old, expired, useless ex-politician causing trouble in the polity, when he should be showing good examples to his grand-children? What more do these old thugs want? We need to “arrange” them spiritually before they bring down the whole country, and run away to enjoy their loot abroad!

  • micky

    Never mind all these old men, they have lost memory, look at that OSOBA self a man that had ruled Ogun state once and has nothing to show for that, can he compare his achievement with the Amosu’s achievement and I knew what he wanted to do! He want his son to replace Amosu and God forbid bad thing in Ogun state. God bless us in Nigeria
