The alleged feud between former Governor Olusegun Osoba and Governor Ibikunle Amosun took a nasty dimension on Thursday,  January 9, 2014 as suspected hoodlums, believed to be loyal to the latter, stormed the APC secretariat in Leme, Abeokuta, thwarting a scheduled meeting of the party’s harmonization committee. Reports have it that scores of people were attacked, including some journalists. In a media briefing held later that day at the NUJ Press Center, Iwe Iroyin House, in Abeokuta, Sen. Gbenga Kaka, condemned the attack on their members and journalists in its entirety, calling on the necessary security agencies to investigate and bring the perpetrators to book. He, however, later reeled out the names of the five-man Interim Executive of the state APC thus: Chairman- to be provided by the Governor of Ogun State; Secretary- Sen. Gbenga Kaka; Treasurer-Chief Sunday Sowunmi; Organising Secretary-Hon. Babatunde Ogunola and the Public Relations Officer- to be provided by CPC, after harmonization with the national interim exco. Present at the briefing were the three senators from the state, six members of the Federal House of Representatives (out of nine that represent the state) and hundreds of party faithful.  It is an open secret that the senators and federal lawmakers are allegedly pro- Osoba, and they are doing everything possible to ensure that the incumbent Governor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun’s return bid in 2015 is truncated. In a swift reaction, Amosun, in a media interactive session held at the Governor’s Office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, on Friday, said the incident was regrettable. He appealed to the journalists that were manhandled and promised replacing lost or damaged items. The Governor added Osoba remains his political father and leader and that he has been and will forever be loyal to the Akirogun of Egbaland.
