Yekini Adeojo bids politics farewell
In a chat with him last weekend, the PDP chieftain, who made several attempts at reconciling the factionalised party, both within and outside Oyo State, noted that he was “fed up with politics.”
He added: “That is why you didn’t see me at the Port Harcourt convention. I have since discovered that it is not worth it after all. “I want to face my private life and my business. That is it; it is not just worth it.”
Adeojo, who is the Seriki Musulumi of Yorubaland, admitted that he intentionally didn’t want to make any statement when he was appointed by Governors Olusegun Mimiko (Ondo) and Ayo Fayose (Ekiti) to chair a committee to select a candidate from Lagos and Ogun states at the Akure PDP meeting co-chaired by the two governors.
“Yes, I was aware of that meeting. Even the meeting in Ibadan, did you see me there? I felt it is time to quit. Let me face my business and private life. I think that is the best thing to do,” he said.
Adeojo, a traditional Ibadan chieftaincy holder, had made several attempts to become the state governor, but each time he contested, he had issues with the late strongman of Ibadan politics, Chief Lamidi Adedibu.
