The ruling APC party on Thursday disqualified Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, from the Oyo state governorship primaries, striking a blow to the minister’s ambition.
The party’s spokesman, Yekini Nabena, stated that Shittu was not cleared because he does not possess the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.
The list has been endorsed by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
The party also refused to clear Senator Aisha Alhassan (Mama Taraba) for the Taraba State governorship primary.
Other governorship aspirants denied clearance are Chief Osiobe Eric Okotie (Delta), Barr Ejikeme Ugwu (Enugu), Ibrahim Mohammed Mera (Kebbi), Danladi Envulu- Anza Halilu (Nasarawa), and Ibrahim Mohammed Bomai (Yobe), who withdrew from the race.
