APC Crisis Deepens As Angry Aregbesola Walks Out On Journalists At Abeokuta Secret Meeting With Amosun, Ajimobi, Akande
There was a mild drama at Ogun State Government House Isale-Igbehin as Osun State Governor, Ogbani Rauf Aregbesola walked out on Journalists who were trying to quiz him on a closed door meeting help between him, the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, Abiola Ajumobi; the Oyo's and the former interim national Chairman of the crisis-ridden All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Bisi Akande,
The meeting, which according to Punch Newspaper came after they left the ‘Tributes Day’ held by the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, in honour of the late Sir Olaniwun Ajayi, an Afenifere chieftain, at his Isara-Remo home.
Akande in company with the governors of Oyo and Osun states, Abiola Ajimobi and Rauf Aregbesola, visited the Ogun State Government House, Abeokuta and held a closed-door meeting with the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
As reported by Punch Newspaper, the meeting, which lasted for one hour, was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the APC.
Emerging from the Government House, both Akande and Ajimobi, while fielding questions from journalists, however, denied that there was crisis in the APC.
When asked by journalists on the alleged rift among some leaders in the party, Akande merely replied, “There is no crisis in the party, we are one.”
Ajimobi also said the party was crisis-free.
When asked why he was not at the APC governorship rally in Ondo State, Ajimobi simply replied, “Some of us were out of the country. Me, for example, I was in China.”
There was however a mild drama shortly after the closed- door meeting, as Aregbesola walked out on journalists who tried to get his comment.
