Oyo State governor and aspirant for ticket of Oyo South senatorial district, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has been screened by the screening committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Abuja, Insideoyo.com gathered.
Ajimobi was screened along side other governors contesting for the Senatorial seats.
Shortly after his screening ahead of the primary for the Senate fixed for October 3 2018 by the party national working committee, Ajimobi said he has no anointed aspirant for the gubernatorial seat in Oyo state.
Addressing newsmen, Governor Ajimobi said all the aspirants for the ticket are eminently qualified to succeed him. He also justified the APC Governors’ Forum preference for indirect primary as against direct option.
He said: ” I think we have opted for indirect but more importantly, we have so many people who are eminently qualified aspirants and for me, I have given them free hands, let them talk to all party members. And whoever among them, I am okay. There is none of them who is not eminently qualified.
I am not God, I don’t anoint. I have no anointed candidate.”
Nasarawa governor, Tanko Al Makura and Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha were among those screened on Thursday.
