I'm Not Aligning With Tinubu, Others – Amosun Declares
According to a statement signed by his media aide, Bola Adeyemi, the Ogun Central Senator said Former Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has declared that he is not in the presidential race to align with Chief Bola Tinubu or any other aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Amosun also said he did not obtain the APC senatorial form, nor did he attend the screening exercise organised for APC senatorial aspirants, as being peddled by some individuals.
Galaxy TV News reports that there were rumours over the weekend that Amosun had agreed to step down for Tinubu, having been screened and cleared for the Ogun Central senatorial race.
But, in a swift reaction, Amosun debunked the rumour spreading on the social media, saying the “two news stories are false and they are instances of the brand of politics that are responsible Nigerians abhor.”
he “procured only the forms for the presidential ticket of the APC and did not attend the screening exercise for Senatorial aspirants because he is not one.”
While urging Nigerians to dismiss the “false news”, Adeyemi maintained that “Amosun is in the race for the presidential ticket of the APC and has no plans to align with any politician in the race.”
