Gbolarunmi, who is the Coordinator of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation in the state made this disclosure on Friday.

He added that what happened on Wednesday and Thursday indicated that the party’s presidential flagbearer is the most accepted candidate in the state.

Gbolarumi said, “It has shown clearly that our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar is most accepted in Oyo State.

“Can we talk about the mammoth crowd during our Freedom Walk or the chorusing of his name at Mapo Hall during the campaign flag-off of governor Seyi Makinde in the presence of the G5 governors, I want to talk about.

“I want to use this medium to appreciate other leaders like Elder Wole Oyelese, Jumoke Akinjide, Engr Femi Babalola Jogor and others for making the walk a success.

“Also to our teeming members, who trooped out in numbers to show their solidarity and support to our party presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar”.
