Vote only APC candidates, Osinbajo tells Ogun electorate

VICE President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has told electorate in Ogun State, to vote only candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Feb 16 and March 2 elections respectively.

He urged the people to be wary of those promoting candidates of other political parties for the elections.

Osinbajo said this on Tuesday while addressing stakeholders at a Town Hall meeting at the Palace of the Ebumawe of Ago -Iwoye, during his campaign tour of Ijebu North Local Government

The VP who spoke in Yoruba said anyone backing any candidate outside the APC should be ignored in its entirety.

He said, ” You must all go to the polls this Saturday and March 2 and cast your votes for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and the governorship candidate of APC, Prince Dapo Abiodun.

“Your votes must be massive, shun any form of division so that our party can conveniently  coast home to victory.”

The VP might be apparently reacting to a comment made by the State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday, during the party’s Presidential campaign rally, that, he would tell the people whom to vote for in the governorship election.

Amosun had vowed not to support the governorship candidate of the party in the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun because of alleged injustice meted on his preferred candidate, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade, who is now the candidate of the Allied People’s Movement.

The Ebumawe, Oba Abdulrazaq Adenugba, in his remarks, drummed support for the re-election of Osinbajo and his principal, Buhari.

Osinbajo had earlier visited Efiyan market in Odogbolu where he canvassed for votes for the Saturday’s election and also paid a private visit on the Dagburewe of Idowa, Oba Yinusa Adekoya.

Addressing market and women at the Olabisi Onabanjo International Market, Ita-Osu, Ijebu-Ode, the VP, urged the people to vote for a selfless leader, like Buhari, against those whom he described as ‘corrupt ‘ ones.

He promised that the Buhari administration if reelected, would focus on three developmental projects that would turn around the fortune of the people in particular and country in general.
