Oyo ministerial nominee denies rift with Governor Ajimobi

09 October 2015, 12:09

Abuja - The ministerial nominee for Oyo State, Adebayo Shittu, has said he has no problem with Governor Abiola Ajimobi, reports Thisday.

Shittu, who spoke with reporters in Abuja, said contrary to speculations, he has a cordial relationship with the governor.

He agreed that there were political differences between him and the governor, when he contested against the governor in the 2011 gubernatorial election, noting that the differences have been settled when the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) merged with other parties to form the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said he served as the Chief Collation Officer for the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari in Saki West/Saki East/Atisbo Federal Constituency in the presidential election and Saki West for Ajimobi in the governorship election.

Shittu thanked the governor, senators and party leadership for the support given to him.

He said it was natural in politics that people will have divergent views on issues such as nominations for public office.
