APC defectors now approaching me to beg Gov. Ajimobi on their behalf – Alaafin reveals

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi 111, has declared that some politicians who left the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) because they were aggrieved are now approaching him to beg Governor Abiola Ajimobi on their behalf.

The monarch, who said that those who left the party are regretting their decision, added that recently some of the aggrieved persons approached him to beg Ajimobi to be allowed to return to the APC, but he told them that their appeal was coming late.

Alaafin, while speaking on Tuesday at an event organised by the Oyo state government, held at remembrance arcade, Agodi, Ibadan, to celebrate this year’s Maulid Nabiyy (celebration of Holy Prophet Muhammad’s birth), said he appealed to the aggrieved former party members to be patient but they never heeded.

Dignitaries present at the event included: Governor Ajimobi of the state, his wife, Florence Ajimobi, wife of the state Deputy Governor, Mrs Janet Adeyemo and Justice Abass Moshood who represented the state Chief Judge, Munta Abimbola.

Others are: Agbaakin Olubadan, Chief Lekan Alabi who represented the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji; High Chief Lekan Balogun; Chief Imam of Ibadan land, Sheik Abdul-Ganiyy Abubakar and Mr Adebayo Adelabu.

Alaafin, in his remarks, said, “Let us stand by the truth. Many of those who left the party came to me and I told them to be patient but they never heeded to the appeal. They are now regretting their action.

“They have now come to ask me to beg Ajimobi on their behalf but I told them that it is now late. It is difficult for those who benefited from government and have turned their back on Ajimobi to mean good if they are allowed to return.”

Oba Adeyemi urged residents of the state to support the emergence of the governorship candidate of the APC, Mr Adebayo Adelabu, as governor so as to sustain Governor Ajimobi’s strides in governance.
