Tinubu Suspends Ajimobi From Leading Adelabu Governorship Rallies
The National leader of All Progressive Congress and South West political lord, Asiwaju Hammed Bola Tinubu has instructed Oyo State governor, Sen Abiola Ajimobi to seize fire on the ongoing governorship campaign rally of his annoited candidate of the party, Chief Adebayo Adelabu Peculiar Mess ( Penkelemisi )
The shameful show of conducted presidential and National Assembly election in Oyo South Senatorial district where the ruling party in the state, APC lost woefully, is still a major concern to the party chieftains both national and the state.
Westerndailynews gathered that, APC’s woeful outing in Ajimobi’s expected stronghold has prompted protests from party leaders, with Bola Tinubu, the National leader, now personally overseeing the campaigns in a desperate bid to prevent a potential surrendering of the governorship to the PDP.
Abiola Ajimobi, the outgoing Governor of Oyo State, can no longer attend governorship campaign events of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state,
Ajimobi lost his Oyo South Senatorial District bid to Dr. Kola Balogun of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who polled 105,720 votes to Ajimobi’s 92,579 votes, meanwhile the other two senatorial slots were won by the APC. To worsen matters, of the five federal constituencies in Ajimobi’s Oyo South, APC won only one, while PDP has already won three and is set to claim the fourth when the election is concluded this weekend.
As expected, south west political wizard, Asiwaju Tinubu can’t afford to lose Oyo, so went into action in reconciling with the political big wigs in the state. And one of what Tinubu has quickly done, apart from buying off Adebayo Alao-Akala’s candidature, masterminding the returns of Unity Forum in ADC was also suspending governor Abiola Ajimobi from showing up at APC governorship campaign meetings involving Bayo Adelabu, the party’s candidate.
“The belief of Tinubu and other APC leaders is that it is Ajimobi that the people are angry with Ajimobi not APC, therefore he should stay away from campaign activities,”
“The fear is that Ajimobi’s appearance at Adelabu’s campaign rallies will be damaging for the party. In fact, there is a jingle of the party begging the people, explaining that Ajimobi, not the party, is the fall guy. Since the presidential and national assembly elections, Adelabu has been campaigning on his own , without the Governor’s involvement.”
