Oyo minister should be Ibadan indigene, chief begs Tinubu
An Ibadan High Chief, Wole Arisekola, has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to consider Ibadan for ministerial appointment, noting that the town has been neglected under the All Progressive Congress-led administration at the federal level.
The Publisher of Street Journal magazine explained that in the Presidential election, Oyo State gave 449,884 votes to APC, of which 204,296 or 45.5 per cent came from Ibadan land, adding that no indigene is holding post in Federal Government paratastsls.
Arisekola stressed that Ibadan has distinguished and seasoned technocrats who have never been alleged of misappropriation of public funds, noting there were decent politicians of Ibadan extraction who Tinubu could appoint in his cabinet.
He said, “… I appeal that the minister to be appointed from Oyo State should come from Ibadan land and must be of integrity.”
