Campaign for the election of Mr Adebayo Adelabu as the next governor of Oyo State began on Friday, with incumbent Governor Abiola Ajimobi giving reasons why the All Progressives Congress (APC) will replicate its 2015 victory across the state in the 2019 election.
Speaking at the event held at the party office, Oke-Ado, Ibadan, Ajimobi pointed to three telltale signs that showed that opposition parties were bound to lose in the forthcoming elections.
Some of the signs, he said, were the fact that just like in 2015, all other parties challenging the ruling APC were in disarray.
According to Ajimobi, opposition parties were doomed for failure from the outset owing to their lack of a cohesive front, various misunderstandings among their members and instability.
He added that evidences that God was with him and the APC was the fact that the opposition was in disarray and failed to flag off its campaign before that of the APC.
Consequently, he ruled that the APC will ride on the divisions among the opposition parties and God’s grace such that its candidates from the governorship to the senate, house of representatives and the house of Assembly will all emerge victoriously.
Speaking further, he said that the APC governorship candidate stood out among other contestants being the only one who rose through the ranks towards being a success in his profession.
