He accused Abiodun of being rigged into office.
Amosun spoke on Friday in Abeokuta during the 50th years anniversary of Abeokuta Club where he was one of the awardees
Amosun had, even as a leader of the APC, backed Adekunle Akinlade who contested on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement at the time.
Akinlade was defeated by Abiodun with a margin of 19,517 votes.
Abiodun polled 241,670 votes to defeat Akinlade who had 222,153 votes.
Speaking, Amosun said the 2019 governorship election in the state was rigged to favour the incumbent governor.
He added that he had moved on because those who orchestrated the rigging had apologised to him.
He said, “During the last election, thank God, Chief Osoba is here, I have said it, we won convincingly. They rigged, rigged, and ended up with 19,000.
“Some of them came to apologise to me. I can be mentioning names. We won that election. But I have moved on.
“We did our work. We will continue to do what we have to do. God will be with all of us.”
In his interview with newsmen shortly after the program, Amosun declared that he was not in support of Abiodun’s administration, saying he must be removed.
Amosun told supporters he would soon disclose his next move.
He also assured his supporters that the next line of action would soon be made public.
“Well, I am happy. When you are in a place and they are telling you that you have done the work of four or five governors altogether. I feel elated. I am happy that they appreciated our little efforts.
“Just wait, very soon, you will hear where we are going next. Clearly, you know my stand, and my stand is my stand. I am not supporting this administration that is there now. He must be removed,” he said.
