The bond shared between President Muhammadu Buhari and the outgoing governor of Ogun state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, may just be beyond politics as the latter was captured waiting patiently with the former in Abuja while INEC made its declarations.
Amosun was accused by the All progressives Congress (APC) of engaging in anti-party activities by campaigning for Adekunle Akinlade, who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) ahead of the governorship election.
He was also accused of encouraging many members of the APC to join the APM even though he remained in the party and openly campaigned against Dapo Abiodun, the governorship candidate of the APC in the state.
Recall how the APC presidential campaign train was pelted with objects when the president went to campaign in the state with Amosun earning criticisms from a lot of Nigerians.
In the just-concluded election, Amosun, a former senator, won the senatorial seat for Ogun West, while his counterpart in Oyo, Abiola Ajimobi lost his own bid to return to the upper chamber.

He said in Yobe and Akwa Ibom, the numbers add up.
It also reported that President Muhammadu Buhari, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council office, addressed the nation shortly after being declared the winner of the 2019 presidential election.
