Nigerians have reacted with disgust after governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, Monday, campaigned for the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential rally at Moshood Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta.
Mr Amosun had vowed to work against Dapo Abiodun who emerged as the APC governorship candidate in the state of his anointed candidate, Adekunle Akinlade, of the APM.
Amosun begged APM supporters to vote President Muhammadu Buhari saying: “Please, I beg you, this is the vote of President Muhammadu Buhari. Don’t worry; the other one, we will resolve. You know we will resolve it. On March 2, we will resolve it. This one is for President Muhammadu Buhari.”
He added: “Please, all of you carrying this APM, by the benevolence of the almighty God, all of you are what, APC. By March 2, all of you will turn to what, APM. All of us, whether you carry this APM, you carry anything, this February 16, it is APC.
“I have told you, the most important election is that of President Muhammadu Buhari. All of us, on Saturday, we are APC. Please repeat after me. But when it is time for March 2nd, we know what we are going to do.”
The governor was allegedly caught on camera ordering the removal of campaign posters of Mr Abiodun at the venue.
