How Buhari Sacrificed Amosun For Second Term Bid by nairavsdollars(f): 7:28am On Nov 02, 2018
It emerged on Thursday that President Muhammadu Buhari decided to sacrifice his long standing relationship with Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State as part of strategies to clear all obstacles to his re-election in 2019.

Amosun, hitherto a strong ally of President Buhari since the days of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), is currently at loggerheads with the national leadership of the party over the outcome of the governorship primaries in the state which did not go in his favour.

While the governor is insisting on handing over to his anointed candidate, Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade, the National Working Committee (NWC) of his party, led by its National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has submitted the name of oil mogul, Dapo Abiodun, as the Ogun State governorship candidate.

Abiodun is reportedly being backed by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, one of the party’s national leaders and head of its reconciliation team; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Aremo Olusegun Osoba, a former governor of Ogun State, and other leaders in the South-West loyal to Tinubu.

Despite his perceived closeness to President Buhari, several efforts by Amosun to upturn the decision has proved unsuccessful.

He recently led a delegation of Ogun monarchs and leaders to the president but that also failed to yield the desired result.

Apparently frustrated over the issue, the governor last week accused Oshiomhole of allegedly conniving with some people to foist Abiodun on the party in the state, as its governorship candidate in the 2019 election.

Amosun alleged that Oshiomhole, with the support of Tinubu and Osoba, wrote a fake result showing Abiodun as the winner of the party’s primary election and thus its governorship candidate.

He also alleged that the duo of Tinubu and Osoba had played roles in what he termed “electoral fraud”, adding that their silence over the matter smacked of complicity.

The governor insisted that the NWC of the party sent to the state didn’t conduct a genuine primary election.

He argued that the only authentic primary was the one which produced Adekunle Akinlade as governorship candidate.

He said: “The president already knows there was no election in Ogun State. He knows that they just went to Lagos, wrote all results and that what they did is fraud.

“If the National Working Committee or the National Chairman said there was an election in Ogun State, it’s all fraud. That is what I said.”

He added, “Mr. President already knows, there was no election in Ogun State, other than the one we held.

“The issue of Chief Osoba and Asiwaju and co, what we said was that there was a definite silence from their end, and silence means consent.

“We have not heard one word from any of them. Was there any election in Ogun State? Yes or No? They should come out. People at this level should be courageous enough to take a position, to come out, to come and tell us whether there was an election.

“The one governorship election that we had, there was live telecast, people even witnessed it.”

Despite the governor’s claim that President Buhari knew that the result declared by the NWC was fake, the president refused to use his position to upturn the result in his favour.

Speaking exclusively with Daily Independent, a chieftain of the party and member of its NWC said President Buhari was in a dilemma over the issue owing to his relationship with Amosun and Tinubu and did his best to resolve the matter in a way that would be pleasing to all.

He said having weighed his options, President Buhari who was desirous of securing a second term in office, decided to pitch tent with Tinubu whom he believed held the key to delivering the South-West to him.

“It is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that are slugging it out with Governor Amosun on the Ogun governorship matter. They are backing Dapo Abiodun while Amosun is insisting on Adekunle Akinlade.

“It is not as if the president, as the national leader of the party, cannot wade in and ask that Amosun’s candidate be declared the winner, but the reality is that he doesn’t want to offend Tinubu and other South-West leaders such as Osinbajo and Aremo Segun Osoba.

“The president seriously needs the votes from the South-West and he believes these are the people holding the region.

“Here is a man who contested thrice and lost until Asiwaju partnered with him and he won. He can’t afford to toy with such a man.

“The president feels Amosun’s pain but he is not prepared to take any chances that will make him lose the South-West region, especially now that Atiku Abubakar is making inroads into the region with his promise of restructuring,” he said.

However, speaking with our correspondent, an aide to Governor Amosun said the governor had been unfairly treated despite his sacrifices for the party.

“To us in Ogun, the governor has been unfairly treated and it is unfortunate. Here is man who has sacrificed his all in making the party what it is today.

“He has led so many negotiations that have secured victory for the APC, the recent being in Ekiti and Osun. To us, we believe this is not the right way to pay him back,” the aide said.

On the rumour that the governor had already planted his key aides in the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) where his preferred candidate, Akinlade, may contest the governorship election, the aide said the report only existed in the realm of speculation, and that the governor was yet to brief them on his future plans.

He, however, assured that Amosun would not dump the APC, especially given his long standing relationship with the president.

If this man I am seeing on this photo is the lifeless Buhari, then I now believe Nnamdi Kanu that he is a robot from Saudi


Or probably, that he was cloned, all vital organs changed and refurbished.

Northerners would go to any length just to remain in power.

Same way Buhari will also betray all of them after securing his second term if he eventually did.Amosun betrayed Tinubu for Buhari in the early days of this govt.Now the reverse is the case

Meanwhile what happened to the canonization of MKO Abiola to sway the SW votes? Atiku factor is also Buhari's fear too? grin grin grin

Re: How Buhari Sacrificed Amosun For Second Term Bid by davodyguy: 7:39am On Nov 02, 2018
I feel so sorry for BAT.

If Buhari can do this to Amosun, then Tinubu is doomed.

Amosun was to Buhari from 2007 to 2011 what Tinubu was to him from 2013 to 2015.

Whenever Buhari came to Lagos after he lost the 2007 election, Ibikunle Amosun gave him money, would send driver to pick Buhari ati the airport, buy him gifts etc.

Amosun was staying in Gbagada, Lagos. Buhari would sleep in his house and they did things together.

Because of Ambition, Buhari jettisoned all that. Tinubu has the ambition of ruling Nigeria in 2023, But Buhari would fk him up soon.

Buhari has my vote though, but he's a bloody niggga

Amosun was fkd by Tinubu. Tinubu wanted to use Yayi, But Yayi project failed, just as James Faleke's project failed in Kogi. BAT not wanting to lose out, used Dapo Abiodun of Heyden to fk Amosun. It's pay back time. But Tinubu can't smell Aso Rock in 2023

I truly pity those that dance to the tunes of Buhari or try to form alliances with that frog eye Tinubu or even play loyalty to people like OBJ... they will all end up disappointed.

As a sincere politician, your loyalty should be to the masses and elections will see you smile but a situation where you are loyal to a few men, you get a knife in the back so they accomplish their own aims.

Amosun, sorry o... your foolishness is legendary

GENERAL YAKUBU GOWON'S ADVISE TO BUHARI...
"There was corruption in Nigeria when Awolowo built Cocoa House, TV station and the first university in Africa
There was corruption in Nigeria when IBB built Third Mainland Bridge, built Aso Rock, National Assembly Complex, turned Abuja into our Federal capital territory.
There was corruption in Nigeria when Obasanjo brought Gsm, banking reform, police reform, civil defence, There was corruption in Nigeria when Jonathan introduced BVN and PVC, built 12 new federal universities, revamped railway lines, made Our economy fastest growing in Africa & third in the world.
If anyone tells you the reason Buhari is not working is that he inherited corruption, tell them great leaders don't blame people and events for their failures. They simply accept responsibility and move on. Ask them, what has Buhari done after all the fake promise of fixing power in 6wks, reducing pump price to #45 naira, making N1 equal to a $ 1, stopping Boko Haram etc. It's a shame.
The inferno truth is, corruption started from heaven when Satan violated a privilege given him. That never stop God's works.
He waited for God to create man and brought his lawlessness and corruption into the garden of Eden.
God wasn't moved. He introduced a redemption plan; The Savior was born, sadly, Judas Iscariot was there.
Not discouraged yet, He gave us God the Holy Spirit.
If anyone tells you the reason Buhari is not working is that he inherited corruption, tell them corruption is rooted in the DNA of homo sapiens ( Latin: wise man ) because we are just mere mortal infected with a virus of good & evil.
Yet, great leaders don't blame people and events for their failures. They simply accept responsibility and move on."

Nonsense report.

Na buhari vote? How will buhari go against the NWC because of Amosun when he didn't do that for the others who also failed in their big for second time or to install a successor?

Nobody in Ogun State wanted the idiot Amosun was trying to foister on us. Not even his collegaues. I'm sure the speaker, who also wanted to be governor, would work beautifully against that idiot who is not even charismatic in the first place. He was just a honorable member of the assembly. Amosun was just using him because of his promise to the egbado people that they will produce the next governor.

And that abiodun is not even moving an inch. The people are ready to vote in GNI... it's his time...and he's from egbado.
