Political leader and former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has declared that he is going to support governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi, and he is not going togo against him. Tinubu said this in reaction to a report that he was making moves to ban Ajimobi from leading APC campaigns in Oyo.
Denying the report, Tinubu’s media adviser, Tunde Rahman, said:
The truth is that Asiwaju is not trying to supplant or hide the governor, instead, Asiwaju is lending his support to the governor’s and APC’s efforts in the state. By its unsubstantiated report, the medium seeks to set brother against brother. Asiwaju and Governor Ajimobi have been political brothers and allies for a long time. Moreover, Governor Ajimobi has been an excellent governor and a faithful member of the APC. He has brought progress to the state and in serving two consecutive terms, Ajimobi made history in Oyo. He is instrumental to anything the APC can achieve in Oyo.
