The 2019 campaign office for President Muhammadu Buhari in the South West has been launched at Mokola, Ibadan in Oyo State.
The office was launched on Saturday by the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, his health counterpart, Isaac Adewole, former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, a former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu and some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, other South-West governors, the leadership of APC in the region and members of the executive council of the state were absent at the event.
In his remarks on the occasion, Barrister Shittu noted that in two and half years, President Buhari has been able to achieve what the past administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was not able to do in 16 years, adding that the present administration has created jobs for over 200,000 people in Nigeria.
Prof. Adewole on his part, harped on unity and the need for eligible voters to ensure that they have their permanent voters’ cards.
Former Senate President Nnamani said the party needed to maintain internal decorum which is the only way to win the forthcoming general elections.
Ex-Gov. Kalu in his remarks, warned that the lingering rift between Gov. Ajimobi and Shittu may spell doom for the APC in the state during the forthcoming elections if the party’s national body fails to quickly broker peace.
