He said, “ there is nothing like APM in Ogun state, the only serious party that I know of its seriousness is APC. For instance , the governor is in APC and our gubernatorial candidate is Prince Dapo Abiodun and we as well have candidates for every other elective positions both at the state and national level.
“We thank God for where we are today and victory is assured, if you look at the level of our acceptance you will know that come march 2nd Prince Dapo will be declared governor Insha Allah.
When asked if he is bothered over the support of the Governor Ibikunle Amosun for the APM candidate in the state, Afuape responded saying he is never bothered reiterating that the governor would have defected to the party outrightly, If APM truly exists in the state.
“Honestly there is nothing like APM, if the governor knows that there is APM in Ogun state and it is strong enough to contest and win election, why didn’t he go to the party? I am waiting to see the governor raise up the hand of the APM governorship candidate anywhere in the state. “
While speaking at the campaign, the APC governorship candidate promised to complete all ongoing projects and as well ensure the ease of doing business adding that his government will be a promise keeper if elected.
“By the grace of God, Our government will be a promise keeping government that will ensure equitable distribution of projects and we would ensure that we will complete all ongoing projects.
” We will also ensure the construction of rural roads so that transportation of goods will be done with ease by farmers because Agriculture will be one of our focus.” He added.
