Amosun Distances self from Oshiomole’s DSS Ordeal

The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has distanced himself from the travail of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole with the Department of State Services (DSS).

Addressing journalists on Thursday after his latest meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, the governor said he had nothing to with the alleged problems which the National Chairman of the party is facing with the secret police.

While reacting to media reports that he and his Imo State counterpart, Rochas Okorocha were behind Oshiomhole’s investigation, Amosun said the question should not be directed to him.

“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.

“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, however, did not state any reason for his frequent visit to the Presidential Villa.

Oshiomole suddenly jetted out of the country on Thursday after he was released on bail by the DSS.

He’s been accused of receiving bribes from certain quarters to manipulate the APC primaries into elective positions – a charge he’s denied.
