Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, has declared that he will never campaign or support his party’s governorship candidate in Oyo state, declaring that he (Shittu) will amount to a bastard if he do that.
Shittu, who sought to contest at the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in Oyo state but was disqualified by the leadership of the party said it won’t make sense for him to “be defrauded out of a primary process and still simply behave like a slave.”
Recall that apart from the Minister, two serving governors of Imo and Ogun states, who had their preferred governorship candidates lost oyt at the primary had declared their support for them on the platform of other parties.
While Rochas Okorocha will be supporting his son in-law, Uche Nwosu on the platform of Action Alliance (AA) his counterpart in Ogun state Ibikunle Amosun, will be supporting his preferred governorship candidate on the platform of APM.
When asked during a press briefing on Wednesday in Abuja, on whether the Minister will support Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s preferred governorship candidate and the APC flag bearer, Adebayo said: “I think it doesn’t arise. I will be a bastard to be defrauded out of a primary process and to simply behave like a slave! It won’t make sense. I have been a foundation member of APC and I have twice aspired to be governor. In 2011, I aspired and I was defeated by the incumbent.
