Communications Minister, Shittu, shuts Buhari/Osinbajo Southwest Campaign Office

The Communications Minister, Barrister Adebayo Shittu has closed the South West campaign office for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo ahead of the 2019 general elections

This is coming few weeks after the Saki-born lawyer turned politician lost the bid to get the gubernatorial ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Oyo State to former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Adebayo Adelabu

The office inside a building strategically located along Mokola-Sanngo Road in the heart of Ibadan, the Oyo state capital was meant to serve as the campaign office of Buhari and Osinbajo in the South West region and gubernatorial campaign office for Barrister Adebayo Shittu.

But, the banners and photographs which were earlier erected during the commissioning of the building have been removed due to the fact that the building has been offered for let after the Minister closed it.

The office which once served as beehive of activities has been deserted, surrounded and over grown by weeds which shows that the building has been abandoned by the Minister.

The office was commissioned on Saturday 20th January 2018, but it is now deserted barely ten months after the commissioning.

It was also gathered that residents of Veterinary, Oke-Itunu and Mokola and other commuters have also taken the advantage of the bushy compound to dump refuse into the premises.
