Amosun  Sets For War With Oshiomole 

The Ibikunle Amosun led  All Progressives Congress government in Ogun State  has made a report against the party’s National Chairman Adams Oshiomole to President Mohamadu Buhari over what has been described as the Chairman’s  sinister ploy in the unending gubernatorial primary of the party in the state.
The rescheduled governorship primary assumed a new dimension on Tuesday night as the government alleged that Oshiomhole, had plans to impose a particular candidate on the party in the state.
The Secretary to the State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, during a live broadcast asked President Muhammadu Buhari to caution Oshiomhole.
He expressed dismay that the national leadership of the party had shifted the primary three times, even as he vowed that the APC in the state would not participate in any further primary election unless a specific date was fixed.
He added that the national leadership must write the state on the date, mode of primary and discard the alleged plans to use ballot paper for the primary.
He said, “With all due respect, we are not known for reckless, irresponsible allegations; but it appears a carefully written script is being directed by the National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“We have learnt on good authority that the national headquarters of APC is determined and desperate to force a particular candidate on the people of Ogun State. We will be ready for them and we shall do nothing unlawful.
“In Ogun State, we shall not participate in any primary unless and until the National Working Committee  specifically writes to us on a date that will not shift and agree on the mode of primary.”
