I don’t want to go into individuals, believe me if you have visited Osun in recent times, you should be able to answer the question by yourself. We have done very well so I can never be threatened by anybody coming in. I am always the aspirant to beat any time any day,” he said.

I’ve been going around to ask for for the support of the members of the party in all the local governments of the state. So I am prepared.

“My performance in office as I speak today is enough for me to win the primary in the party and to win the election in all areas of endeavour, in infrastructure, health, Education, security and the economy. That means by every standard, we have done so well. So, giving the fact that within the last three and a half years, I have been able to justify the confidence repose in me by the people.

“I believe winning the election is not a problem. I have always been a member of the party. It is not the matter of being a member of the Caretaker Committee. I have been very much involved in the party, right from the time of AD till date. I am not a novice when it comes to the issue of party. The Caretaker thing is just a fact, I wasn’t a member of the Caretaker when I won the election in 2018, so why should I be discouraged from serving the party?” Oyetola said.
