Immediate past governor of Oyo State, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for picking Dr. Sunday Dare as the ministerial nominee from the state.
The former governor described those nominated by the president as “quality choices,” considering their experience and pedigree.
Speaking particularly on the choice of Dare, the former governor described him as an eminently qualified individual who has contributed immensely to the fortunes of the party and the country.
“We are happy and proud that such a quality person is nominated from Oyo State. As one of the back room organisers and engine room of the APC, he has contributed immensely to the fortunes of the party in the state and at the national level.
“His political exposure and participation at the party’s highest hierarchy will prove him in good stead in the task ahead. I can confidently say that such a highly cerebral nominee will contribute further to the fortunes of the party in Oyo State,” Ajimobi said.
Ajimobi called on APC members in the state to rally round Dare for him to succeed in the task ahead.
He noted that Dare is equipped with the necessary experience and skills that will prove invaluable as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Ajimobi also felicitated with the other nominees from the South West, describing them as accomplished and competent persons that have contributed immensely in various ways to their states, the party and the country.
He urged them to see their nomination as a national assignment towards raising the bar of governance and moving the country to the next level in line with President Buhari’s developmental agenda.
