Recall that Amosun supported Adekunle Akinlade’s candidacy, which he ran for against Abiodun, the APC candidate, on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) (APC).
Abiodun had won the election over Akinlade with 241,670 votes to 222,153.
According to The Press Nigeria, Akinlade has now endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party candidate Ladi Adebutu for governor.
Speaking after receiving an honor on Friday in Abeokuta, Amosun said that Governor Dapo Abiodun’s election had been rigged.
Abiodun’s supporters, according to the senatorial representative for Ogun Central District, have apologized to him.
He said: “During the last election, thank God, Chief Osoba is here, I have said it, we won convincingly. They rigged, rigged, and ended up with 19,000.
“Some of them came to apologise to me. I can be mentioning names. We won that election. But I have moved on. We did our work, we will continue to do what we have to do. God will be with all of us.”
Speaking to newsmen, the former governor insisted that Abiodun must be removed, stressing that he was not in support of the present administration in the state.
“Well, I am happy. When you are in a place and they are telling you that you have done the work of four or five governors altogether. I feel elated. I am happy that they appreciated our little efforts.
“Just wait, very soon, you will hear where we are going next. Clearly, you know my stand, and my stand is my stand. I am not supporting this administration that is there now. He must be removed,” Amosun said.
