Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu has declared that he will ensure that the incumbent governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi is jailed when he eventually becomes the governor in 2019.
Speaking with journalists on Tuesday evening in Abuja after a closed door meeting with the APC national chairman Chief John Odigie Oyegun, Shittu said, “He (Ajimobi) has failed in so many things including human relations and others I cannot say openly in the media. Why is he afraid of going to jail if another Buhari like me comes to power in Oyo state?
“Why is he afraid of primaries? For seven years, he has been running the Local Governments alone without elected officers. What it means is that the LGA funds come directly into his pocket”.
“He committed so many atrocities and that is why he is afraid of a Buhari coming to power in Oyo state”.
“I want to say that if anybody is desperate in the Oyo political firmament, it should be Gov. Ajimobi who believes that if Barr. Shittu succeeds him, he will be in jail”.
“That is what he is reported to have always told people who mentioned me to him”.
“He thinks that I am too principled, firm, unbendable and uncompromising when it comes to issues of morality. It is he who is desperate to stop me not me being desperate to become governor.
