Ogun governor Ibikunle Amosun has vowed not to allow the state to be taken over by those who want to reap from where they had sowed nothing.

The governor said he and his supporters were on ground and were ready for the ‘profiteers’ whenever the governorship primary eventually takes place.

Amosun charged his supporters to keep their ”gun powder dry” for political battle ahead.
Amosun also brushed aside allegations of “security breach” made by five APC governorship aspirants in the state, saying it was all attempts de-market Ogun.
“Don’t worry because of them. This position we are today is by the benevolence of God, we are more now, I have told them, we have the government, we have the party and we have the people.
“They have been trying all the tricks in the book, they will have trouble having 10 or five percent of the people. If they do it one million times, the result will be the same. They thought they are God. God who dealt with them before will harmer more this time. The disgrace they got last time (2015) will be more this time.
“Keep your gun powder dry, we will mobilize you with the necessary logistics when the time comes. If they are doing kuru Kere moves, tell them that they will be graced. We are on ground here. We will give you money for your motor (transport fare) back.
“They writing something, nobody is going to kill anybody, if you have the love of Ogun State, don’t de-market it, nobody will kill anybody. We are ready for them, I’m the chief security officer of the state, something is worrying their brain, we are waiting for them."
Legit.ng had earlier reported that no fewer than five governorship aspirants in Ogun claimed they received death threats over their ambition to rule the state ahead of the primaries.
The quintet of Sefiu Kaka, Bimbo Ashiru, Dapo Abiodun, Abayomi Hunyen and Jimi Lawal raised the alarm.
The report said they called on security agencies to investigate the alleged intimidation, harassment and threat to life they have been subjected to.
