Campaign for the election of Mr Adebayo Adelabu as the next governor of Oyo State began on Friday, with incumbent Governor Abiola Ajimobi giving reasons why the All Progressives Congress (APC) will replicate its 2015 victory across the state in the 2019 election.

Speaking at the event held at the party office, Oke-Ado, Ibadan, Ajimobi pointed to three telltale signs that showed that opposition parties were bound to lose in the forthcoming elections.

Some of the signs, he said, were the fact that just like in 2015, all other parties challenging the ruling APC were in disarray.

According to Ajimobi, opposition parties were doomed for failure from the outset owing to their lack of a cohesive front, various misunderstandings among their members and instability.

He added that evidences that God was with him and the APC was the fact that the opposition was in disarray and failed to flag off its campaign before that of the APC.

Consequently, he ruled that the APC will ride on the divisions among the opposition parties and God’s grace such that its candidates from the governorship to the senate, house of representatives and the house of Assembly will all emerge victoriously.

Speaking further, he said that the APC governorship candidate stood out among other contestants being the only one who rose through the ranks towards being a success in his profession.

Noting that Adelabu is known to have risen to become deputy governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Ajimobi averred that contestants of other parties were not known to be successful professionals except they corruptly enriched themselves.

According to Ajimobi, victory was also sure for Adelabu because he had a traceable and renowned family history.

On the contrary, he noted that the family house of several other governorship candidates, especially those from Ibadan, could not be traced.

He reiterated that his choice of Adelabu and his deputy, Mr Samuel Egunjobi was divine and not an imposition from the former governor of Lagos State, Chief Bola Tinubu or anyone else.

Especially, Ajimobi said Adelabu alongside his deputy, Egunjobi, are capable to continue on the path of good governance that he had laid.

Ajimobi also rubbished notions that he was bound to have wranglings with Adelabu upon his emergence as governor.

The event saw Ajimobi hand over the party’s flag to Adelabu and Egunjobi, as well as unveil all its candidates vying for federal and state legislative seats.

In attendance at the event was the deputy governor, Mr Moses Adeyemo; party Chairman in the state, Chief Akin Oke; Senator Fatai Buhari representing Oyo North; party executives, stalwarts and members from the state toward level; members of the state executive council; local government Chairmen and others
