A major contender for the Oyo State Governorship race under the APC, Ayodeji Karim has urged all his supporters and the people of Oyo State to vote for the candidate of his party, Bayo Adelabu.
Talking to journalists some days ago in Ibadan, Karim who is also the Managing Director of Costain Plc disclosed he is clamouring support for Adelabu based on the agreement his party had with the governorship candidates in Oyo State to work together with whoever emerges as the party’s flagbearer.
Karim stated ”Adelabu is my friend and also he is a member of my party, so it’s going to be shameful if my friend or my party loses, I’m throwing all my weight behind him and we win this together’.
When asked why he was more like the only contender that stayed with Adelabu after losing the APC gubernatorial ticket, Karim said ‘I believe in the ethos and philosophy of APC, if you know me very well, I respect rules no matter the differences and I think the party’s success is what everyone should work for. I talk to Adelabu on a daily basis, I share his dream, he is a man of his words and I know he has what it takes to move this state forward.
Karim disclosed he had over the weeks met with friends and associates, his loyalists and supporters and made them see the reason they should all work together to ensure Adelabu’s victory.
The businessman who claimed he is ready to serve Oyo State in any capacity as long as it involves moving the State forward said it’s better for the APC to win majority of the States so as to give room to continuity that started in the last four years in the area of infrastructure, economy, security and all others.
