Rising from its strategic review meeting of the last Presidential and National Assembly elections in Ogun State, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has thanked the people of Ogun State for overwhelmingly voting for APC in the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

In a statement released at the end of the meeting and signed by the Publicity Secretary of the Caretaker Committee of Ogun State APC, Tunde Oladunjoye, the party, while thanking the electorate in Ogun State and urging them to continue to vote APC, also specially thanked “our leaders and party members in Ogun Central for saving Governor Amosun from terrible defeat”.

The statement reads in part:
“We have cause to thank the good people of Ogun State for voting massively for President Buhari and other APC candidates as shown in the final results. We must also thank the people of Ogun Central Senatorial District, who, as good party loyalists, listened to the call of our foremost leader, Aremo Segun Osoba, who pleaded for people not to disgrace Amosun.”

“A close look at the figures from Ogun Central, showed that but for APC, Amosun would have lost woefully, as even his touted APM members cast a vote of 10,038 against Amosun who was the combined candidate of APC and APM.”

“In fact, APM made the poorest outing despite the billions of Ogun tax payers’ money expensed by Amosun on the moribund project, as the party scored just about seven percent of the total votes in Amosun’s Senatorial District and less than five percent across the State. The only House of Reps seat “won” by APM was where a police officer was shot dead by hoodlums”.

Our findings, from the reports from the field, contrary to what Amosun will want us to believe, was that APM members, especially in Ogun East Senatorial District, actually worked against President Muhammadu Buhari. They were openly telling voters that they were not concerned about Buhari’s re-election, but we thank God for the voters who stood their ground and voted for Buhari and APC”.

“Our findings also revealed the use of serving commissioners and other appointees of Amosun, to harass voters and intimidate the electoral officers.
We also noticed slowness on the part of those in charge of the elections and the various degrees of malfunctioning card readers, and lack of thorough understanding by some youth corps members deployed for the elections.

“As we march on for the Governorship and House of Assembly elections slated for March 9, we call on all the good people of Ogun State to continue to vote for APC,” the statement concluded.
