How Ajimobi Floored Barr. Shitu And Others



It is no longer news that there is a serious rift between the current Minister of Communications, Barr. Adebayo Shittu and Oyo State Governor,

Senator Abiola Ajimobi over who will take over the APC structure in the state. Everything became clear recently when a state congress of

the ruling party, All Progressives Congress was held and Oyo State was not left out of the exercise.  Two parallel congresses were held and a faction held its own at Liberty Stadium in Ibadan which comprised of Barr. Adebayo Shittu, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu , Hon. Dapo Lam

Adeshina and other party stakeholders who are not in support of the governor’s style of leading the party in the State while the state governor, Senator Abiola and others too held their own congress at

Adamasingba Stadium. At the end of the exercise, the party at the national level recognized the congress held at Adamasingba

Stadium in Ibadan. It has now become clearer that Senator Ajimobi controls the party executives and the structure which had been completely taken from the Minister of Communications, Barsrister Adebayo Shittu.
