Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, and the leadership of the Allied Peoples Movement are considering options on their next move over the results of the governorship election in the state.
Amosun gave the indication on Wednesday while speaking with the party’s leaders during a meeting at his private residence in Ibara, Abeokuta.
The governor’s preferred candidate, Adekunle Akinlade of the APM lost to the All Progressives Congress’ governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.
The private meeting had in attendance Akinlade; the state Deputy Governor, Yetunde Onanuga; and the Director-General of the APM’s Governorship Campaign Organisation, Sarafa Ishola, among others.
The governor said the APM was consulting on the next step to take on its rejection of the results of the last Saturday governorship election.
He said, “The framework needed for a legal action against the announcement of the results by INEC is ready.
“Another larger meeting will be convened to determine the way forward.
“I will not take a lone decision on the issue, but I will allow the invited APM members to give more insights about what happened in the wards during the elections before INEC released the results.
“We were defeated by 19,500 votes or so. Clearly, that says a lot of things.”
Meanwhile, the state Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Tunde Oladunjoye, told our correspondent that members who left the party to join the APM were free to return.
He, however, said those who had questions to answer might not be allowed to return until they had been pardoned by the party leadership.
Oladunjoye said, “If they decide to come to the party, apart from those who have questions or disciplinary action or those who have been suspended, they are welcome.
“The person that was suspended has not been expelled. So, technically, he is still a member.”
