The immediate past minister of communication, Adebayo Shittu has described as inexperience and a political novice the youth leader of APC, Oyo North, Dauda Ajana, over his recent comment reported by section of media.
According to Shittu, “suggestion by Dauda Ajana, a puppet of AJIMOBI’S SENACO FACTION OF OYO APC is simply stupid, baseless and ought to be ignored by right thinking members of our party.”
“What or who could have driven me out of APC,of which i am a foundation member. The truth is that I am not and would never belong to the SENACO FACTION of our Party. Rather, i belong to the UNITY FORUM FACTION of our Party; a faction which was formed to liberate ourselves from the oppression, marginalisation, dictatorship and undemocratic practices of former Governor Abiola Ajimobi who was leader of our Party in the State.”
The former minister said a delegation of Oyo APC Local Governments Chairmen’s Forum visited him at his Mokola, Ibadan Chambers to seek means of reconciliation of all the factions within Oyo APC, only a week ago, which pointed to the fact that he is still a member of APC.
Barrister Shittu explained that he had already given the committee the pre- condition of return and consolidation of Justice and guaranteeing of sense of belonging if members of the Unity Forum are to forget the past and return.
“The general public is therefore urged to ignore the tantrums of Dauda Ajana, a jobless political hustler and his paymasters since he is completely inconsequential in the affairs and possible resolution of the crisis in Oyo APC.”
