OYO INSIGHT has exclusively been informed that Governor Abiola Ajimobi has given seven out of the over 30 governorship aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, a clean bill of ‘political’ health to contest the party primaries.
One of the criteria used in picking those seven aspirants include their financial wherewithal and feasibility across the state.
At a meeting presided over by him today, the governor, to the surprise of many, increased the list from 4 to 7.
Ajimobi, OYO INSIGHT recalled, had at an Oyo Central senatorial meeting of the APC last Thursday hinted that he would prune down the number of guber aspirants to 4.
Those who are to proceed to buy the nomination forms are Adebayo Adelabu, Joseph Tegbe, Olusola Ayandele, Olalekan Alli, Niyi Akintola, Adebayo Shittu and Owolabi Babalola
Though Owolabi has bought his form yesterday, others are to proceed to Abuja on Monday to purchase their nomination form of N22.5m.
Shittu was however not at the meeting.
As at the time of filing this report, none of the aspirants has reacted contrarily.
