Pro-Amosun lawmakers win APC primaries for second term in office

Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.

All the 13 members of Ogun State House of Assembly known to be loyal to Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Tuesday, won the primaries of All Progressives Congress, APC, to contest for a second term in office.

The other 13 lawmakers loyal to former Governor Olusegun Osoba had earlier defected to both Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the Social Democratic Party, SDP.

The party primaries which recorded dramatic moments in most of the voting centres saw the Speaker, Suraj Adekunbi, and his other twelve colleagues clinching the party tickets. The Speaker ( Yewa North) polled 188 votes out of 189 votes.

An aspirant from the Abeokuta North constituency, Taiwo Oludotun, who was contesting against the incumbent, Olayiwola Ojodu, was asked to step down but his supporter vehemently resisted.

‪A staunch supporter of Mr. Oludotun who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES under the condition of anonymity, said their choice aspirant spent so much money on the local government executives and his supporters to step down.

‪In a mild protest, Mr. Oludotun’s supporters collected their ballot papers without voting and handed them over to him to use the way he wants.

The pro-Amosun lawmakers who won include: Deputy, Tola Banjo defeating two other aspirants with 255 votes, Israel Jolaoso (Ewekoro), Victor Fasanya (Abeokuta South I), Olakunle Oluomo (Ifo I), Akinpelu Aina (Ado-Odo/Ota I), and Adeyemi Harrison (Ogun Waterside).

    This is a master piece, it shows that Nigeria is going to be great again. These body builders and their evil business of destroying the nation in the name of religion being it Christianity, Muslim, Ifa worshippers or what have you are becoming obsolete. That is, their lies and 419 theories are no more in vogue, Nigerians are learning everyday and are becoming wiser.

    Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has denied ever granting the Punch interview,the
    opinions expressed whether positive or negative are that of a dubious
    and frustrated journalist with a chained mind spewing out figment of
    evil imagination.Oritsejafor stood for fairness unbehalf of all
    Christians, if Christians in Nigeria are enjoying some measure of
    fairness in this current Government it’s because Pastor Ayo opposed the
    decision of a party that was determined to exclude Christians from his
    fold, Osinbajo the Vice President is a product of Oritsejafor struggle
    for Christianity. Even our Lord Jesus Christ suffered worst insult from
    the likes of maritally frustrated folks like Luis Odion who authored
    this article from a demented mind.No price is too much to pay for what
    you believe in especially when it comes to your faith, Oritsejafor has
    defended the gospel with all it takes not minding the hyprocitical
    disposition of faithless Christians who would rather chose to be slaves
    in their own country and be seen as politically correct. Without
    prejudice to the current administration of President Buhari the
    allegation by the former CBN governor has not been substantiated with a
    single conviction,the accused is innocent until proven guilty.Its a
    know fact that the respected Catholic faith from where all other
    denomination spring from introduced commerciallasion into the faith for
    the betterment of the society and the empowerment of her members,Schools
    Hospital etc were introduced for the betterment of the society if Ayo
    oritsejafor commercialise is Jet so as to ease the burden of
    maintenance what is wrong with that?enemies of the church had wanted
    the South African scandal to be True but our God is alive to defend the
    righteous.If members are paying Tithe and offering I wonder how that is
    a problem for Louis odion to bear obviously non of oritsejafor’s
    members has complained because they are all flourishing while Louis who
    could not keep is home is dying in Pennury after he was caught stealing
    from the Edo state government and was sacked by the ever vigilant
    comrade Governor Adams Oshilmohole. We in Edo State Know the face of
    Louis Onion as the face of a Thief.
