APC Primaries: Osinbajo, Amosun Meet As Oshiomhole Vows To Resist Pressure

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday met behind closed doors with Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Punch report.
Both Osinbajo and Amosun are from Ogun State. While Osinbajo hails from Ikenne, Amosun is an indigene of Abeokuta.
Ogun State is among the areas where the ruling All Progressives Congress is experiencing rancorous primaries.
The All Progressives Congress National Working Committee panel, led by Muhammad Indabawa, had on Wednesday in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, announced Prince Dapo Abiodun as the winner of the election, saying that Abiodun polled the highest votes having scored 102,305 votes.
Indabawa flanked by other members of the panel added that Mr. Jimi Lawal polled 51,153 votes closely followed by Otunba Bimbo Ashiru who scored 29,764 votes.
Other aspirants – Senator Adegbenga Kaka; Adekunle Akinlade and Abayomi Hunye – scored 17,771; 23,443 and 9,610 votes respectively.
But the state executive of the party after a parallel primary had said a member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Kunle Akinlade, won the shadow election.
At the end of his meeting with Osinbajo, Amosun did not speak with State House correspondents who approached him for comment.
The governor had earlier in the day joined eight other APC governors to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
A former Minister of Education, Senator Iyabo Anisulowo, had on Wednesday accused the Vice-President and the APC National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, of being the masterminds of the crisis in the APC in Ogun State.
She insisted that Akinlade, an indigene of Yewa, was the authentic governorship candidate of the APC in the state.
