Former Minister of Communication, Barrister Adebayo Shittu has said that former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole and Late former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi were those who worked against his re-appointment as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Shittu revealed this while featuring on Parrot Xtra Hour on Radio.

On the circumstances surrounding his being dropped as Communication Minister by President Muhammadu Buhari. He stated that as matter of clarity, that he was neither dropped non sacked.

“One can only be dropped or sacked before the end of a tenure. Appointments are the discretion of the President.”

Shittu claimed that Oshiomole and late Ajimobi worked against his re-appointment through their political mischiefs.

“I was painted bad among other allegations, that I was responsible for the failure of the party in the State in the 2019 elections. I was thinking I would be automatically re-appointed but I didn’t know about their mischiefs, scheming and the petitions they wrote against me.”

“I also know that former governor Ajimobi hated me because of my intelligence. He never knew I am very intelligent and my very independent mind, so he can’t control me. He conspired with Oshiomhole and excluded me from the party’s primaries. I don’t lobby for positions and I thank God for what he has done for me.”
