The Ogun State caucus of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the National Assembly may intervene in the political rift between the former governor of the state, Olusegun Osoba, and the sitting governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
The lawmaker representing Ifo/Ewekoro Federal Constituency of the State in the House of Representatives, Ayodele Isiaka, stated this on Saturday while speaking with journalists.
The feud between Messrs. Osoba and Amosun in the build up to the 2015 general elections led to the exit of the former and his supporters from the APC to the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
“When I get back to Abuja, I am going to contact my colleagues in the caucus of APC and we shall look on the need to fashion out way to attend to the issue.
“The difference between them was political rather than personal. We are going to work with both of them,” Mr. Isiaka said at the site of a federal road he is helping to repair.
Mr. Isiaka said he was funding the temporary repair of the 7 kilometre road in Ifo Local Government Area from his purse as the road was not included in constituency project of the National Assembly. He assured that he would contact the state government to help in bringing a permanent solution to the problem.
Speaking on the repair of the road, a resident of the area, Ariori Saheed, described the road as a nightmare to the people of the area.
He said successive governments had promised to repair it, but failed to do so.
