Former Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has stated that the prefers been a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria than becoming one fo President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministers.
Speaking to newsmen on Thursday, Ajimobi revealed that retrieving his allegedly stolen mandate in the last senatorial election is more important to him.
He stated that he has not been offered any ministerial position in the “Next Level” cabinet of President Buhari.
The former lawmaker insisted that Oyo ministerial slot should go to a younger member of the party since he is not the only APC member in the state.
Ajimobi said: “I am in court for my senatorial election. I only expressed my preference that I am in court because I prefer the Senate.
“How can I be pursuing the Senate and ministerial appointment at the same time? I prefer the Senate.
“I hold President Muhammadu Buhari in high esteem. I will actually prefer a younger person to be considered for the ministerial slot since I am pursuing my senatorial ambition.”
