Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has declared that he was not feeling bad about his senatorial election defeat.
He lost the election to Dr. Kola Balogun of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ajimobi spoke on Saturday at the grand finale of the 2019 Ibadan Cultural Festival and Awards ceremony organised by Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII).
“Some people are saying Ibadan people did not vote for me. I said but they had voted for me three times before, which I won. That means 3-1. So, there should not be any cry about it”, Sun quoted him as saying.
Ajimobi also spoke on the controversy trailing the origin of 2019 APC governorship aspirant, Olasunkanmi Tegbe.
“I am proud and happy to say that we’re brothers. This award has put to rest series of arguments over whether Tegbe is from Ibadan or elsewhere, they said the same thing about me.
“CCII has confirmed it with this indigenous award and I want to tell you that you lose something and at times you gain. Now, I am sure that Ibadan and Oyo State people will vote for Tegbe when next he stands for election”, he said.
