Oyo 2019: Shittu tests power with Ajimobi, obtains APC gubernatorial form


The Minister of Communications, Barrister Abdulraheem Adebayo Shittu has obtained his gubernatorial nomination form.

This is despite weekend’s meeting between Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state and the gubernatorial aspirants in the state ahead of the 2019 general elections,

The meeting, which took place on Saturday and Sunday between Ajimobi and all the gubernatorial aspirants was shunned by Shittu, who is one of many jostling to succeed the governor.

Shittu who is said to be out of Nigeria at the moment, obtained the form through Saheed Oladele, Head of Adebayo Shittu Strategy Committee and Malik Aderogba, Head of Special Tasks for Adebayo Shittu’s Campaign Organization on Monday, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Abuja.

With this development, Shittu will be testing power with Ajimobi’s perceived candidate and other aspirants jostling for the number one seat in the Pacesetter state.

Oladele in a statement confirmed that Shittu has obtained the expression of interest and nomination forms.

According to him, “Director of Media and Strategy, Mr Saheed Oladele, and the Head of Special Tasks for Adebayo Shittu’s Campaign Organization, Mr Malik Aderogba have just obtained expression of interest and nomination forms on behalf of the Honourable Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu.

May God accept our prayers”.
