Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has called on Akinlade to dump APM for APC.
Barely 24 hours after the tribunal in Ogun State upheld Prince Dapo Abiodun's victory as the winner of the Ogun State Governorship election, the Chairman of Heyden Oil and Gas has invited his arch-rival of Allied Peoples Movement, Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade, to join APC.
Abiodun made this invitation after the tribunal affirmed his victory of the February 9 governorship election.
The governor, while advising Akinlade, urged him to shelve further pursuit of legal challenge of the election.
“It is a validation of the people’s choice of me to serve the state by giving quality governance.
“I urge the Allied People’s Movement (APM) and its candidate to now leave behind the 2019 gubernatorial election.
“They are free to return to our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), which they themselves left.
“However, anyone who feels they don’t want to return should instead begin preparing for the 2023 elections,” Abiodun stated.
