Governor Abiola Ajimobi has said he will not support the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, in his bid to succeed him as governor of Oyo State.
The governor said this during an exclusive interview with the Channels Television’s programme, Roadmap 2019, which aired on Monday night.
Although the governor and the minister, who has since declared his intention to run for governor of the state in 2019, are members of the All Progressives Congress, the governor doesn’t consider him qualified for the role.
Asked if he would support Mr Shittu, Governor Ajimobi replied in the negative.
“He doesn’t have what it takes to be a governor,” the governor said.
“I have been a governor now for seven years. I know the qualities of someone who should be a governor; he doesn’t have it. His temperament cannot be that of a governor.”
As far as Governor Ajimobi is concerned, governors must be reserved and should have proven themselves in their field of expertise, something he believes he achieved before going into politics.
