Don’t make Ajimobi minister, group tells Buhari

Oyo State All Progressives Congress (APC) Reformers, a stakeholder coalition of former political appointees across the 33 local governments including chairmen, commissioners, lawmakers and others, has President Muhammadu Buhari not to consider former governor Abiola Ajimobi for ministerial appointment.

Ajimobi, according to the group, does not deserve a slot in the soon-to-be constituted cabinet.

In a statement jointly signed by its acting secretary, Mr. Sulaimon Ramon and Public Relations Officer, Engr Dipo Fawole, APC reformers said: “90 per cent of the members of this body were elected and political appointees under the former governor and they have knowledge of  how retrogressive, deceitful, anti-people  and self centred the former governor was.”

The group said the APC performed poorly in the last election in the state because the masses were mainly against the former governor, considering his policies mainly anti-people.
