Ajanaku Shines At National Convention As Oshiomole Emerges APC Chairman

Otunba (Dr) Rotimi Ajanaku

The All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant for the House of Representatives, Ibadan NorthWest/ SouthWest Federal Constituency, Otunba Rotimi Ajanaku stole show at the national convention of the party on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

Ajanaku who had earlier joined the Oyo State Governor, Senator Ajimobi and other leaders at the Governor’s lodge became the cynosure of all eyes on his arrival.

As he stepped into the venue, the ovation was loud, chanting by supporters as his name’ Ajanaku’’ rented the air; even in the presence of the honourable members . Ajanaku’s well-wishers and praise singers were not discouraged by downpour.

Otunba Rotimi Ajanaku had earlier sponsored his teeming followers to the convention. This according to a source is unprecedented. Rotimi Ajanaku’s arrangement for his people was impressive and fascinating, even the occupant of the office has failed by denying them full benefits of representation.

Buttressing Ajanaku’s magnanimity, Mr Akinfewa, a delegate from Ibadan North said our aspirant for House of Representatives has travelled abroad, we came to the convention on the bill of a governorship aspirant with a belief that a new dawn has come.

Another source from Oyo Central Senatorial District said: our aspirant for Oyo Central Senatorial  “ IRE DE’’  Hon. Bimbo Kolade sponsored us to the convention on his bill and we were well taken care of, he has been a wonderful cheerful giver who meant well for the masses ,  this assured us to support his aspiration.
