Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.

The Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has expressed confidence that President Muhammadu Buhari will receive a landslide victory in South-West in the February 16 presidential election.

Governor Ajimobi said that, Buhari’s all-around impressive achievement throughout the country since coming on board was enough reason for the people to vote for him for a second term.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi who happens to be the Oyo South Senatorial Candidate for All Progressives Congress (APC), in the General Election, announced this during a meeting with 67 interest groups in the state, in company with the APC Party Chairman in the State, Chief Akin Oke, and the governorship candidate of APC, Chief Adebayo Adelabu.

Among these were Christian and Muslim bodies, Artistes, traders’ associations, youth groups, drivers’ unions, market and food sellers associations and independent broadcasters.

Governor Ajimobi said, “Buhari is not a match for other candidates in the presidential race. This election will indicate if Nigerians really want progress or retrogression. You cannot compare a lion with a cat, although they are both in the cat family.

“It will be an election between light and darkness; an election between pig and cattle egret. It is an election between integrity and corruption. After 16 years of looting, they have come back like nothing has happened.

“They abandoned the most important road in the entire Southwest, if not the country, Lagos-Ibadan expressway for 16 years, Buhari came and started fixing it. He started the light trail rail project along the same axis and it is almost completed.

“I trust our people. They are the most sophisticated when it comes to politics, so they have made up their minds. They will vote Buhari and he will record a landslide victory in the Southwest. We will reciprocate these kind gestures.

“Our unemployed youths are getting N30,000 monthly under the N-Power programme, the Trader Moni is addressing the needs of the ordinary traders, the school feeding programme is feeding millions of pupils across the country every day.

“When we governors could not pay salaries as and when due, he bailed us out on several occasions without discrimination. How can we leave a man with such altruistic gestures and follow those who put us in a mess."

He also use the opportunity to woo support for all APC candidates in the coming election, including the party’s governorship candidate, whom he portrayed as the most efficient, effective, capable and brilliant among those jostling to succeed him.
