Ahead of February 19 Governorship Primary, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun on Thursday said he remained the aspirant to beat in the contest.
He spoke shortly after he appeared before the Screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress, at the party’s National Secretariat, Abuja, as part of steps leading to the conduct of the State governorship primary election.
Oyetola, who was accompanied to the party Secretariat by party leaders, party supporters and loyalists, including cabinet members, said his performance in the last three years, put him ahead of other aspirants.
“Recently, I began a strategic consultation with the party members to seek their support ahead of the primary election. And the reception has been very encouraging. So far, we have visited 18 councils.
“I don’t want to talk about individuals. But I believe that I remain the aspirant to beat,” Oyetola added.
