Nigeria’s Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, has threatened to work against the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Oyo State, Adebayo Adelabu, at the February elections.
The minister is the latest high ranking member of the APC to openly declare that they will work against the election of the party’s governorship candidates in their states.
He joins Governor Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun) and his counterpart in Imo, Rochas Okorocha who had also made the same threat in their respective states.
Speaking during a media chat in Abuja, Shittu who lost in the race for the governorship ticket said without restitution, there won’t be peace in the APC.
The National Working Committee of the APC had raised the Peace and Reconciliation Committee for each of the six geopolitical zones to reconcile aggrieved members ahead of the general elections.
The minister accused the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Oyo Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, of being the brains behind his exclusion from the party’s primaries.
