Governor Ogun State, Ibukunle Amosun, has distanced himself from the recent travails faced by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The APC national chairman was reportedly quizzed and asked to resign by officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday over a petition from some aggrieved governors who alleged that he received bribes during the recently held primary elections of the party.
The APC chairman has been engaged in a war of words with Amosun; the governor of Imo State Rochas Okorcha and his Zamdara State counterpart, Abdulaziz Yari, since the conclusion of the wage primaries.
Speaking to State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Governor Amosun said he has no hand in the troubles that the party chairman is facing.
He said “I think you are probably giving me an oversight role and I am not a security person, so clearly I think that question will not be for me. I don’t have to hide under a finger to fight. If there is a need for me to put my views across, you know me by now that I will do it,”.
On the whereabouts of the APC national chairman, who is currently out of the country, Amosun stressed that “I have told you those things are beyond my pedigree and you are asking me questions that I am not well suited for. The one that I have to talk about we have said it loud and clear that it doesn’t event need anything added”.
