Nigeria: 2019 - Allow Ogun Speaker Succeed You, APC Leaders Beg Amosun

Abeokuta — Some leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogun State have urged Governor Ibikunle Amosun to anoint Speaker of the House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi as his successor for his loyalty and competence.

The APC chieftains, including a former Minister of State for Education and one-time member of the Senate, Senator Iyabo Anisulowo; Prince Bolaji Aretola and Mrs Funmilayo Adeniran, spoke in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area when Adekunbi met with women groups from the Ogun West Senatorial District as part of his consultations for 2019 governorship.

Vanguard gathered that their stance came on the heels of recent reports that APC leaders in Ogun West zone, comprising the Yewa-Awori people, had pruned down list of governorship aspirants from the area to three after reportedly screening seven.
