Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State on Thursday took his battle with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where he met President Muhammadu Buhari.
The embattled governor is believed to be pushing for his preferred candidate to be governorship candidate of his party in the state, a desire that appears to have been dimmed.
The issue led to open altercations between the governor and members of the National Working Committee of the APC, headed by the Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
Details of the meeting were, however, not made public as both leaders met behind closed doors.
Fielding questions from State House correspondents after the closed door meeting, Amosun hinted that the meeting was “fruitful” but refused to provide further details.
Asked to comment on the raid of the APC chairman’s house, Amosun also declined comments on the raid.
“I think you are probably giving me an oversight role and I am not a security person, so clearly I think that question will not be for me,” he said.
When asked if Oshiomhole’s trial was orchestrated by him, he declared that he won’t hide under any guise to fight the APC chairman.
He said: “I don’t have to hide under a finger to fight. If there is need for me to put my views across, you know me by now that I will do it.
“I have told you those things are not my pedigree and you are asking me questions that I am not well suited for. The one that I have to talk about, we have talked about it loud and clear.”
