The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun has made it clear that he does not fear the National leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The governor said he only fears God and President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that he was ready for Oshiomhole.
Amosun stated this when he received a letter from the Allied Peoples Movement, APM, endorsing Buhari of the APC as its presidential candidate for the February 2019 presidential polls.
Amosun took delivery of the endorsement letter from the governorship candidate of APM, Hon. Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade, at the APC Secretariat on Abiola Way, Abeokuta, the state capital.
The Governor is expected to transfer the letter to President Buhari.
He also declared that the elected executive of the APC led by Chief Derin Adebiyi would serve its four-year term fully.
The National Working Committee, NWC, had during the week dissolved the APC executives in Ogun and Imo states.
Oshiomhole had also appointed a three-man caretaker committee for the party in Ogun State.
The committee members are: Yemi Sanusi (Chairman), Ayo Olubori (Secretary) and Tunde Oladunjoye (Publicity Secretary).
Governor Amosun said, “You know me by now. For me, I fear God and I respect people. So, it won’t be because we are afraid or we don’t want to talk.
“Where we are now, what we should concentrate in doing is to let them know that here in Ogun State, this is the home of President Buhari and we must vote massively for him.
“This is the home of APC. We must let them know that come February 16, 2019, by the benevolence of the Almighty Lord…
“We are human. We are no God, and that is why we are telling them that in this coming election, in this Ogun State, it is whoever all of you (people) decide to back that will win the election.
“So, the best way to answer them is through our action. And what is the action? We will use our votes to let them know who owns this Ogun State.
“So, if they are looking for states to destroy them, they should not think of Ogun State. We are ready for them.
“We don’t fear them. All of them put together, we don’t fear anybody. We fear God and we fear President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We have decided to let them be for the sake of President Buhari. If not for the President, we know what to do.
“Just ignore them. Don’t engage them for anything. Let us be focused and redouble our efforts so that in the coming election, we are going to answer them with our votes.
“I want to assure you that this executive that God has used you to put together, the executive will be there for the next four years. They will serve their term.”
