There appears to be cracks in the ranks of supporters of Late Senator Buruji Kashamu who have dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State.
While some of them were received into the APC by the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun at his Ibara, Abeokuta residence on Thursday.
The others were received by the incumbent Governor Dapo Abiodun in his Oke Mosan office, also on Thursday
Those that defected to the to the Ibikunle Amosun faction of the APC were led by Chief Ibilola Solaja.
At the meeting held Amosun, pledging their support for him while those that attended the reception held for Abiodun also pledged their support for him.
Asked why they aligned with Amosun instead of the incumbent Governor, Dapo Abiodun, Azeez retorted: “Amosun is a leader in that party. He was known before Dapo Abiodun and he did well. I don’t have any grudge against any of them.
“In fact, I wish Gov Abiodun all the best in office. But to me, I know Amosun is the leader there, and he performed creditably well while in office as the governor.”
On their expectations as new members of the APC in Ogun, the politician said, the decampees would continue to seek the progress of their new leader.
“Once a leader is progressing, it will affect the followers. Our belief is that Amosun will become what we want him to become. I will not say anything yet.
“When we are talking of politics, everybody would like somebody to be his own leader, we people went to meet Amosun because we love him. We want him to lead us and we will support him in anything at all that he wishes to do.
“I believe that the APC has many chances, and it is now the only party any politician can join presently,” he submitted.
