Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has backed the agitation by Oke-Ogun people to produce the next governor.
He, however, advised that they must seek the support of other zones for the dream to be actualised; noting, for instance that Ibadan alone constitutes 52 per cent of the state’s population.
The governor spoke in Okeho, headquarters of Kajola Local Government, at the fidau for a stalwart of All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Salami Oloola.
He acknowledged the role played by Oke Ogun people in his election.
Ajimobi said: “I can recall that during the 2015 governorship election, I won in nine out of 10 local governments in Oke-Ogun. This aided my emergence as the first governor to secure a second term in office in Oyo State.
“I cannot thank you enough. I will forever cherish you my people from Oke-Ogun. I assure you that I will reciprocate your love for me.
