Tinubu Bans Ajimobi From Attending APC Rallies In Oyo State

The outgoing Governor of Oyo State, Abiola can no longer attend governorship campaign events of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

According to a report by Sahara Reporters, Abiola lost his Oyo South Senatorial District bid to Dr. Kola Balogun of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who polled 105,720 votes to Abiola ’s 92,579 votes, meanwhile the other two senatorial slots were won by the APC. To worsen matters, of the five federal constituencies in Abiola ’s Oyo South, APC won only one, while PDP has already won three and is set to claim the fourth when the election is concluded this weekend.

APC’s woeful outing in Abiola ’s expected stronghold has prompted protests from party leaders, with Bola Tinubu, the National leader, now personally overseeing the campaigns in a desperate bid to prevent a potential surrendering of the governorship to the PDP. And one of what Bola Tinubu has quickly done, apart from buying off Adebayo Alao-Akala’s candidature, is to ban from showing up at APC governorship campaign meetings involving Bayo Adelabu, the party’s candidate.  “The belief of Bola Tinubu and other APC leaders is that it is that the people are angry with — not APC — therefore he should stay away from campaign activities,” an APC source very familiar with the development told SaharaReporters.

“The fear is that ’s appearance at Adelabu’s campaign rallies will be damaging for the party. In fact, there is a jingle of the party begging the people, explaining that , not the party, is the fall guy. Since the presidential and national assembly elections, Adelabu has been campaigning on his own — without the Governor’s involvement.”

In the said jingle, listened to by SaharaReporters, APC “begged” all indigenes of the state in the name of God and in the names of prominent Yoruba sons such as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former Governor Bisi Akande and Tinubu.

The party also mentioned President Muhammadu and Adams Oshiomhole as begging the people, and specifically censured for his pride in disrespecting the Olubadan of Ibadan, among many other offences. With Alao-Akala’s withdrawal for Adelabu, Bola Tinubu has already gained inroad into Ogbomosho, where the party could not campaign ahead of the February 23 elections.
