APC’s candidate for the governorship election in Oyo state, Mr Bayo Adelabu flagged off his campaign at the All Progressives Congress Secretariat in Oke Ado Ibadan on Friday.

As expected, it was a massive carnival. The crowd was large and not short of notable Oyo sons and daughters from the world of politics.

One man who had a lot to say at the event was the current governor of the state, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi who believes that Adelabu's choice was God's intervention.

"We have men with great profiles in the race but the choice of Adelabu is a divine intervention of God. We have doctors, engineers and others with degrees but when the primaries came, God took control of things and we settled for him,” he said.

But does this mean Adelabu is less qualified, compared to others? Not in Ajimobi’s books.

He stated that Adelabu is indeed the most qualified amongst the contestant and strongly believes he will occupy his office come 2019.

"Adebayo Adelabu is a Muslim and has a name to keep. He has worked and risen to the highest peak of his career and he is the most qualified among the contestant contesting for the position.

“I strongly believe he will win the coming election and occupy my office and continue with the good works I left behind," he boasted.

But there is a question; how sure is Mr Ajimobi that his works are so good that the people want its continuity?
