ONE of the leading governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Osun state, Mr Bola Oyebamiji has debunked the rumours that he is a foreigner in the State, describing the elements behind it as political jobbers.
Oyebamiji, who is the state Commissioner for Finance also reiterated his commitment to the welfare of his people.
The rumours had it that the Commissioner has lost his links and connection with the State due to his long stay in Lagos State.
Contained in a statement issued and signed by his Campaign Director, Dr Olawale Tijani, Oyebamiji, however, noted that he runs a thriving farm (White Green Farms) in his hometown, Ikire and has been on ground and available in the State in the last 20 years.
According to him, “I own farms in Onireke, Funmilayo, Agboora and Oosa villages in Ikire, my hometown and have always been on ground. These rumours are part of propaganda to mar my governorship ambition by political jobbers and they are fighting a lost battle. If they are in doubt, they are surely in for a shocker.
“I am a bonafide son of the soil and have contributed immensely to its development in terms of human and socio-economic well-being of my people. Osun is my primary constituency and I am a proud Omoluabi of Osun.
“For instance, if the rumours are to be believed at all, how come my traditional rulers and their subjects contributed their widow’s mite and visited the party secretariat en masse to obtain a nomination form to actualize my governorship aspiration”, the statement continued.
