Two factions within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the southwest are reportedly in a supremacy battle ahead of the coming gubernatorial election in the state.
According to reports, the battle is not only threatening its chances in the poll, but its 2019 fortunes in the zone.
Tribune reports that some leaders of the party in the south west were accused of anti-party activities.
Going further, the news outlet reports that the camp loyal to a mainstream bloc had approached the presidency to complain about alleged anti-party against two APC governors, Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state and Yahaya Bello of Kogi state as well as APC Ekiti State governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
It was reported that the trio were supporting the candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Moshood Adeoti, against the party’s candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.
Adeoti is said to be receiving support from the governors because they are against the candidature of Oyetola who is said to be a relative of party’s national leader, Bola Tinubu.
It was also reported that he would return to the ruling party, after winning the poll.
Adeoti resigned his appointment as the secretary to Osun government and defected to the Action Democratic Party (ADP).
He was one of the 17 All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirants in the July 19 primary conducted by the party.
Adeoti, who announced his withdrawal a day before the primary, eventually scored 128 votes.
