“Tell me ,who among the aspirants can match Oyetola in administration?Sentiment apart, He has all it takes to govern the state and continue the good work of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.The facts are there.
“The leadership of APC in its wisdom opted for direct primary knowing fully well that is the best option for a hitch free and victory in September,Elder Adedeji pointed out.
