Oyedeji Ahmed, in a statement personally signed by him and made available to journalists, described Bayo Lawal’s nomination as a very strategic move to bolster the party’s chances at the polls.
He said Barrister Bayo Lawal had been part of the Oyo state political structure since the administration of late Lam Adesina when he was appointed Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice in 1999.
According to him, both Governor Seyi Makinde and Bayo Lawal share common goal which is to make Oyo state an industrial hub just as the government has done in Housing Corporation and other areas too.
“Barrister Bayo Lawal is a formidable grassroots politician who enjoys wide supports across the state especially in Oke-Ogun where he hail from.
