If reports reaching theSheet.ng are anything to go by, Nigeria’s Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, whose name was struck out of the list of cleared gubernatorial aspirants for APC primaries in Oyo State, may have abandoned the Buhari/Osinbajo campaign office.

According to Daily Post, Adebayo Shittu closed down the South West campaign office for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The Buhari/Osinbajo campaign office whose inauguration was attended by former Governor of Abia state, Chief Orji Kalu and former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, is strategically located along Mokola-Ojoo Road in the heart of Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, and was meant to serve as the campaign office of Buhari and Osinbajo in the South West region, gubernatorial campaign office and Ministerial office of the embattled Minister, Shittu.

It was gathered that the banners and photographs which were earlier put up during the commissioning of the building have been removed, and the building has been offered for let after the Minister closed it.

The Buhari/Osinbajo campaign office which was commissioned on Saturday, 20 January 2018, has been deserted after it was abandoned and closed by the Minister ten months after the commissioning. Residents of Veterinary, Oke-Itunu and Mokola and other people have also taken the advantage of the compound surrounded and over grown by weeds to dump refuse.

The Minister of Communications who claimed that the house was rented to him (Shittu) by Hon. Ajibola Muraina, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, added that the fact that the rent had terminated does not mean that Shittu is abandoning campaign for Buhari/Osinbajo ticket.

Aderogba, a cousin to the Minister said:

“To start with, the building in question is not owned by Barrister Adebayo Shittu but was rented from one Barrister Hon. Ajibola Muraina, a PDP chieftain.

“Secondly, the fact that the rent was terminated is not conclusive that Barr. Shittu is abandoning campaigning for Buhari/ Osinbajo ticket as we are aware that Barr. Shittu is already making arrangements for a new and better location for coordinating campaigns for Buhari and Osinbajo’s reelection.

“Furthermore, Barrister Adebayo Shittu remains one of the most loyal, the most trusted and the most beloved ministers in the Buhari presidency.”
