Osinbajo booed in home state as he campaigns for Buhari, other APC candidates


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, was Monday shouted down during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential rally in his home state, Ogun.

DAILY POST reports that this occurred when he urged party supporters to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and APC candidates “all the way”.

This incident may not be unconnected to the crisis rocking the Ogun chapter of the APC.

The crowd reaction was a sign that they were not totally in support of the party’s governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.

Earlier, Osinbajo, who spoke in Yoruba, said Buhari deserved a second term while he listed the administration’s achievements in the South-west.

And as he said “vote for APC all the way (in reference to other candidates)”, the crowd said “Noooo”.

This lasted for about 5 minutes as Osinbajo begged them to allow him speak.

“E duro…e jo, e gbo mi ma (Hold on, please listen to me).”

But the adamant supporters rebuffed his plea and continued to scream “Noooo”

Osinbajo ended his speech abruptly and invited the president to the podium.

Adekunle Akinlade, who vied for the APC ticket, is the governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples’ Movement (APM).

APM had been adopted by Governor Ibikunle Amosun, after his rejection of APC governorship election outcome.

Amosun’s loyalists, including Akinlade, a fededal lawmaker, dumped the APC after the national leadership insisted Abiodun (an oil mogul) won the primary.
