Barar. Akeem Agbaje has advised paarty leaders in Oyo federal constituency that the mistake of the past where governorship candidates not based in Ibadan but had been residing in Lagos,Abuja and abroad gets the ticket to contest on behalf of the party should not be allowed to continue.
The former Nigerian bar association chairman told the gathering in the reception that was organized for him by party leaders that he had lived and worked in the state all his life and had been a member of the party even from the time of former governor Lam Adesina.
He said if given the mandate to represent the APC, members would not have the problem they had in the past when technocrats were brought in to run government when they had worked tirelessly to give victory to the party at the polls because the candidate does not know them.
He emphasized the fact that he knows everybody and has a good relationship with them all and that the Alafin of oyo is his father.
