Outgoing governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun has not relented in his opposition to his elected would-be successor, Prince Dapo Abiodun who is billed to assume office on May 29.
Although they belong to the same All Progressives Congress (APC), Amosun is still bitter at the emergence of Abiodun as the gubernatorial candidate of the party and the eventual winner at the general election.
Now Amosun appears determined to distrust the inauguration of Abiodun.
On Wednesday night, the Public Relations Officer of the APC caretaker committee in the state, Comrade Tunde Oladunjoye confirmed this with the pictures and terse note he sent to The State Online by 11:03 pm.
The pictures showed that venues of the inauguration lecture slated for Thursday and inauguration proper on May 29, both in Abeokuta, the state capial, been blocked with heaps of sand, road excavation and bulldozer.
The entrances were also dug to prevent entry.
According to Oladunjoye, “On the pretext of road construction, Senator Ibikunle Amosun not only completely closed the road leading to MKO Abiola Stadium, ABEOKUTA venue of the inauguration of Prince Dapo Abiodun as Governor of Ogun State, he also dug a deep and wide gulley in front of June 12 Cultural Centre, venue of the inauguration lecture holding tomorrow (Thursday).
“Not done , he left huge tip of sand and a bulldozer at the entrance. The question is: Would this have happened if it is Amosun’s puppet that is to be inaugurated as Governor?”.
