Olufemi Atoyebi, Ibadan

The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi,  said that the recent crisis witnessed in the party was sponsored by faceless individuals who encouraged rebellious activities by a group of people to destroy the party in the state.

The governor, who spoke during a meeting of the Oyo South Senatorial District in Ibadan, also stated that the party would provide a level playing field for all aspirants during the coming primaries, adding that the huge presence of party members at the meeting showed that the crisis had no effect on the popularity of the party.

He said that after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari and the national executive of the party in Abuja recently, the party had been repositioned ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Ajimobi said, “We also realised that some faceless people were behind the crisis that we experienced recently in our party in Oyo State; they were the one sponsoring the dissident group. I am, however, happy that despite the insinuations that our party membership has been depleted because of the actions of the group, we still have this huge presence of members here. This is an indication that we are on top of the game.

“The meeting we held with President Buhari in Abuja last week was to fashion out ways of repositioning the party for victory in the 2019 general elections. The meeting was also used to review the activities of our party.”

The governor said that he had no preference for any of the governorship aspirants and others who were aspiring for political seats in the state in 2019.

He said, “The issue is not that I prefer some gubernatorial aspirants than the other. Indeed, I encouraged all of them to join the race. They are all my people and they are all equally qualified. Let me assure you once again that I will never impose any candidate but we will support any candidate who has the capacity to win.”
