The 2019 general elections are hear and the political drama is in surplus in Nigeria's South-West region.

From the god son who is ready to battle his former god father at the Lagos governorship primaries on Independence Day to the love lost between minister and the governor; the APC's tables are shaking.

Nigeria's Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu claims the serving governor of Oyo state, Biola Ajimobi does not have a National Youth Service Corp certificate.

Adebayo Adelabu emerged as the consensus candidate after all other aspirants stepped down. 

Shittu described the process as unconstitutional and illegal. 

"Specifically the governor. Governor Ajimobi who has been telling his supporters that if Adebayo Shittu emerges as the next governor, he will be in jail.

"He think that I am too principled and that I cannot be controlled. So I asked a question - he has been in office for almost 8 years - who has been controlling him?

"The governor orchestrated my disqualification from the primaries. He used the NYSC as the last card. Whereas, I have it on good authority that even he (Ajimobi) does not have an NYSC certificate and yet he wants to go the senate. I hope that at the appropriate time that this issue will also be brought to the fore".
