Details have emerged why the Former Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu did not attend the enlarged reconciliation meeting of the Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held on Saturday.
There have been speculations that the Chieftain of the party was not invited and carried along in the reconciliation move, Insideoyo.com reports
Shittu confirmed he was officially invited to the meeting which was held at the Bodija, Ibadan home of Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala.
In a telephone chat with PMParrot, the Saki-born politician said he was not able to attend the meeting because he was in Abuja.
He said “I’m presently in Abuja attending to urgent issues but my representatives are there to take care of my interests and I am not likely to be in Ibadan for the next one week.”
It will be recalled that former governor Abiola Ajimobi before his death, inaugurated a reconciliation committee to settle the grievances between all members of the party.
Ex-Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala was nominated then, as the chairman of the committee.
Senator Teslim Folarin, Chief Bayo Adelabu, Engineer Olasunkanmi Tegbe and other top members of the opposition APC attended the meeting.
