The Oke-Ogun area in Oyo state may soon present a consensus candidate for the 2019 governorship election just as they continue to agitate that the number one seat be zoned to the area.
The Deputy Governor of the State, Chief Moses Alake Adeyemo, is one of the governorship aspirants from the area.
Speaking at the weekend on Political Circuit, a political programme on Ibadan-based Fresh FM, disclosed that leaders in the area were holding regular meetings with the aspirants among whom are Communication Minister, Adebayo Shittu, Commissioner for Lands, Ajiboye Omodewu, Prof. Adeolu Akande and Engr Aderemi Olaniyan, all of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
