Oyo Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has called on members of his cabinet aspiring to contest elective positions in the 2019 general elections to resign immediately.
Ajimobi made the call on Saturday in Ibadan at a meeting with governorship aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress(APC).
The governor also met with political appointees aspiring to contest elective positions in the 2019 elections.
The governor said that it was mandatory that they resign their appointments immediately, adding that some of them no longer have time for their jobs.
The governor stated that resigning would give them the opportunity to concentrate on their aspirations while providing others opportunity to serve.
“We still have some months to the end of this administration. They either stay or leave for others to have the opportunity to serve.
“You will see that some will not resign. We want to reduce the gamblers.
“We want people who are serious; those who are seriously committed to either seeking offices or focused on governance,” he said.
