The All Progressives Congress (APC) Ogun State chapter on Sunday said it was still studying the accusation of evasion of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) levelled against its governorship candidate, Mr. Dapo Abiodun.
The state APC Chairman, Chief Derin Adebiyi, said this in a chat with correspondent.
Chief Adebiyi said the party would not rush to take a decision, saying the matter was still a mere accusation.
When questioned what the party would do if Abiodun is disqualified, Adebiyi said a decision would be taken at the right time.
“When we get to the bridge, we will cross it. It is an allegation and until it is proven, that is when we will take necessary actions.
“I cannot pre-empt what will happen until that time. For now, it is still a mere allegation against him. It is a step after the other.”
The Director General of Dapo Abiodun Campaign Organisation, Segun Adesegun, said Abiodun and members of the campaign team were not worried by the allegation.
While saying the governorship candidate did not violate any law, Adesegun said the group was busy with how to win the governorship election.
Mr. Adesegun said, “We are not bothered at all. If it is INEC that causes it, we can be bothered. It is those who want to be known. We have not violated any law.
“For those who took us to court, we shall meet in court. We are not shaken at all. Once we have been taken to court, we will meet at the court.
“If the allegation has come from INEC that would have been another issue.
“We are not bothered. What concerns us is how to win the election. These are the people that are trying to be known. It is not an issue. We have not violated any law.”
For the time being, there was jubilation in the camp of the state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, over the claim against Abiodun.
Some loyalists of the governor were seen in Abeokuta jubilating over the likely disqualification of Abiodun by INEC.
It was still gathered that Abiodun’s camp held a lengthy meeting strategising on how to address the allegation.
