Saki-born Minister of Communications, Barr. Adebayo Shittu has offered to make the current gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, his running mate if the party substituted his name as the party’s flag-bearer in Oyo state.
Shittu said anything short of that will spell doom for the party in next year election in Oyo State as he insisted he is the only credible aspirant who can deliver the state for the party in 2019.
The minister stated this in a telephone conversation with a news platform on Monday.
Shittu said “Before you talk of reconsilation, let there be restitution. After restitution, then we can talk of true reconciliation. We all condemned PDP for their injustice and impunity, why are we not doing things differently if truly we are progressives.
“What I mean by restitution is for the leadership of the party to return the ticket to me and make my very good brother, Adelabu as my timing mate.”
He advised the party not to follow the impunity and imposition in the former ruling party which was responsible for its Waterloo in 2015.
