Former Personal Assistant to late Governor Lam Adesina of Oyo State and the new Chairman of the Nigeria Lottery Regulatory Commission, Alhaji Fatai Ibikunle has been talking about his reason for eyeing the Oyo South Senatorial seat.
Ibikunle, who hails from Lanlate town of Ibarapa East local government, informed that he is the best man to represent the district from 2019, adding that his ambition is divine.
The seat is currently occupied by Sen. Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi who is believed to be nursing ambition to succeed Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
Though Akanbi has not officially declared his governorship ambition, Ajimobi, through his aides led by his executive assistant on political matters, Dr. Morohunkola Thomas, have been going about, telling people about the governor’s ambition to return to the Senate where he was between 2003 and 2007.
With Ibikunle’s declaration, Ajimobi may have it tough clinching the ticket as the former equally enjoys support from party faithful, especially the faction loyal to former Governor Adesina called ‘Lamists’.
