Ibikunle Amosun, Ogun State governor has today explained what he considers reason why some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) hates him.
Amosun who spoke during the kick-off of his ward-to-ward senatorial campaign, in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun Central Senatorial District, alluded the reason for his hatred to his achievements and commitment to the development of Abeokuta, the state capital, ahead of other regions in the State.
He said no governor in his right senses would leave the state capital to remain the glorified condition it was, before he became Governor in 2011.
Amosun said: “Why am I being castigated? Abeokuta was made the State capital over 40 years ago and the only offence I have committed is to have developed Abeokuta but I tell you, no sane governor will neglect Abeokuta, else that governor will see the result.
“I have never neglected other areas. We have one of the best flyovers and roads of our administration in Sagamu, there are two flyovers in Ijebu Ode with good roads and the same things are done in Ijebu Igbo and Yewa.
“What we’ve done is that when we do three things in Abeokuta, we do two or one in other places and we are running round day and night to get this done.
“I am not the first governor in Ogun State but I appreciate what they’ve done but if anybody castigates me? No governor worth his salt will abandon Abeokuta.”
He urged people in all wards not to sell their Permanent Voter Cards(PVCs), while pleading for their votes.
“Don’t be deceived into trading your PVC, they will come with promise of loans and grants requesting for your PVC number, tell them they are thrives and criminals, ask them where they have been since all these years that they are now coming on the eve of the election,” he added.
