The governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement in Ogun State, Adekunle Akinlade has expressed confidence that he will emerge victorious in the March 2 governorship election in the state.
He said the injustice allegedly perpetrated by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress ,Adams Oshiomole, would not stand.
The APM candidate called for voters to help him win the election to prove to the ruling party that he was the people’s top choice to succeed Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
Akinlade, Amosun’s preferred candidate to contest the post under the banner of the APC, dumped the ruling party for the APM after the party settled for Dapo Abiodun to realise his ambition to rule the state.
He said during his ward-to-ward campaign ahead of the election on Friday the people of the state were ready to reclaim the mandate “stolen from him” while in the APC.
He blamed the APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole for the party’s decision to deny him of the ticket.
He said, “I think what I have seen is the genuine consciousness, a revolution I must say. And that the people of Ogun State have come to the realisation that the injustice that was perpetrated on October 2, 2018 must not stand.
“And that’s what you are seeing all over. People are coming out genuinely, ready to actualise and uphold that mandate that was given to us on October 2, 2018. That’s what we are seeing all over. People are happy.
“We will not allow the injustice to stand in Ogun, my people want me that is why you can see a lot of supporters here.”
