The Ogun State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State deserved to be pitied and prayed for as his recent comments against the APC Governorship candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun, bothers on outgoing syndrome, emanating from political amnesia and loss of touch with reality.
In a statement issued in Abeokuta on Wednesday and signed by the Publicity Secretary to the Ogun APC State Executive Caretaker Committee, Comrade Tunde, Oladunjoye, the party said that the governor actually deserved sympathy.
The statement reads in part:
“But for the fact that the reported outbursts of the governor was reported by a credible online medium, we would not have taken him serious ; and for the fact that friends in the media have been asking for response, we would not have reacted.”
“However, rather than exchange words with the governor, we would call on members of the public to please sympathize with the governor and pray for him, as he is obviously manifesting outgoing syndrome resulting from political amnesia, loss of touch with reality and fear of life after office”.
Oladunjoye said for an individual to attempt to play God and assault the collective intelligence of the well informed people of Ogun State by telling them who the next governor of Ogun State would be, as if he has already written the results, showed that such a person deserved to be pitied, adding that they did not need to exchange words with him, but to actually sympathize with him on his present state of paranoia on Prince Dapo Abiodun.
The APC Spokesmen stated the constant, unceasing and monotonous attacks on Dapo Abiodun by the governor and his minions showed that APC candidate remained the leading contestant and his imminent victory is only a matter of weeks.
He challenged the governor to publish the recent survey he commissioned and read to some leaders in his house last week, wherein it was revealed that his preferred governorship candidate would not only lose the election, but also lose in his, hitherto strongholds of Ifo, Ewekoro and Ado Odo Ota local governments.
Oladunjoye stated that APC and its candidate would remain focused, maintain decorum and continue to sell out policies and programmes to the good and discerning people of Ogun State, even as were sure of victory.
