Abiodun, Amosun camps hold parallel ward congresses - Ogun APC crisis
The political war between Governor Dapo Abiodun and his predecessor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun, took a new twist on Saturday as the two factions held parallel congresses across the wards in Ogun State.
It was gathered that one person was injured when loyalists from both camps clashed at Ward 11, Abeokuta South Local Government Area.
It was observed that both Abiodun and Amosun camps used separate venues in some wards, to avoid a clash between the two political groups.
In ward 14, Abeokuta South Local Government, it was noticed that Amosun’s loyalists held their congress at St Louis Secondary School, Onikoko, while Abiodun men held theirs at Anglican High School, Ibara.
The two factions had moved into the venues with prepared lists containing names of their executives, and merely adopted same after taking head counts of APC members on ground.
At the ward, Amosun men elected Odesanya Clement as the chairman, while Abiodun’s loyalists announced Lasisi Taofeek as the ward chairman.
