“Let anybody that has done that come out, I am not talking of our referred fathers. I accept that there are so many giants that came before me. We stood on their shoulders and we are still standing on their shoulders, but the truth must be told and we must say it. Since 1999, Ibikunle Amosun has paid his dues in Ogun State and I am still paying it. Put your mind at rest, we are APC, APC is ours”,Amosun added
