    APC crisis: What Gov. Amosun said about Oshiomhole’s reported arrest by DSS

    The Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, has denied having a hand in whatever the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, may have been going through.

    Amosun spoke with reporters after he met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.

    Oshiomhole was during the week reported to have been the guest of the Department of State Services, DSS, over unspecified corruption allegations.

    The Ogun State Governor had been having a running battle with the party chairmen over the come of the party’s gubernatorial primaries.

    Asked about the recent report, Amosun said, “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.

    “I don’t have to hide under a finger to fight. If there is a need for me to put my views across, you know me by now that I will do it.”

    The Governor also deflected comments on Oshiomhole’s reported flight from the country, saying, “I have told you those things are beyond 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 said it loud and clear that it doesn’t even need to add anything.”
