Oyo North lawmaker, Senator Abdulfatai Buhari, has said that the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, was caused by the loss of the governorship seat to the Peoples Democratic Party.
OYOINSIGHT.COM understands that there is leadership crisis within the camp of the APC in the state, since the demise of late former governor Abiola Ajimobi.
He, however, said a former Governor of Oyo State, Adebayo Alao-Akala, is the leader of the party in the state.
Buhari said this during an interview with journalist, Edmund Obilo, on Thursday.
When asked if the death of former Governor Abiola Ajimobi had affected the progress of the APC in Oyo State, the lawmaker responded, “Of course. Ajimobi meant different things to many people.”
This was just as the two-term lawmaker said that he will support APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to be the next president of Nigeria the moment he declares his interest in the nation’s top job.
When asked if Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State was working against Tinubu’s interest, Buhari said that was not true.
He responded, “No. I am Tinubu. I am not Fayemi and I will not be in a meeting where somebody would be working against Tinubu. I am supporting Tinubu.”
Responding to a question on whether Tinubu was running for president, Buhari said, “If he wants to be President, I will support him. I will campaign for him.”
