In a recent statement, former Minister, Barrister Adebayo Shittu, expressed regret over Oyo State’s governance, suggesting he could have made a significant difference as governor. Shittu lamented the state’s current situation and highlighted what he perceived as missed opportunities under the present administration.

Shittu, who served as Minister of Communications under President Muhammadu Buhari, voiced his disappointment during a media interaction. He criticized the leadership in Oyo State, asserting that his absence as governor has hindered the state’s progress.

The former minister pointed out various aspects where he believed he could have positively impacted the state’s development trajectory. He emphasized his experience and expertise, citing his track record in public service.

Despite not securing the gubernatorial ticket during the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries in 2019, Shittu remains vocal about his aspirations for leadership in Oyo State. He continues to advocate for what he considers as the best interests of the state.

Shittu’s remarks have sparked mixed reactions, with some questioning the timing and intentions behind his statements. Critics argue that such comments may only serve to further polarize the political landscape in Oyo State.

As political dynamics continue to evolve in Oyo State, Shittu’s sentiments underscore the complexities and competing visions within the political arena. The state’s residents await further developments as the discourse surrounding governance and leadership intensifies.
