Contrary to the expectation of many that Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State would announce his defection from the All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday, there are strong indications that  the governor has shelved his planned defection.

Vanguard gathered that Amosun was prevailed upon by some party leaders in the state to shelve the planned defection from APC to another party in protest of the emergence of an oil magnate Dapo Abiodun as the party’s governorship candidate in the state.

Vanguard observed that Amosun shelved the planned defection due to the alleged refusal of his loyalists  to join him in dumping the party.

Meanwhile, APC faithful, drawn across the 20 local governments of the state held a solidarity visit to the governorship candidate Dapo Abiodun at his residence in Iperu area of Ogun East Senatorial district.
