God will punish me if I stop Akinlade from leaving APC – Amosun


The Ogun State Governor and the All Progressives Congress’ candidate for the Ogun Central Senatorial District,  Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday said if he failed to support the governorship aspiration of the candidate of the Allied People’s Movement, Adekunle Akinlade, God would punish him.

Amosun asserted this on Monday while addressing a stakeholders’ meeting of the APC that had in attendance Akinlade and 26 aggrieved candidates of the APC loyal to him who announced their defection to the APM.

“God will punish me if I stop Akinlade. All of you who are supporting Akinlade, you have my support and blessing,” the governor said.

Speaking further: “When these people came, they told me they were leaving the APC, I said ‘no’ but I couldn’t stop them. In fact, Akinlade has my full support. I am not going to stop him. Everything I have, I will use to support him, let them try whatever they want to try, we also have our strategies and I am not going to hide behind one finger.”
