The Computer Guild of Nigeria (CGN) has launched a movement to attempt to stop the ambition of Communication Minister, Barr Adebayo Shittu to become governor of Oyo State in 2019.
Speaking during the launching of the Movement known as “My Vote not for Shittu”, Mr Wole Adedoyin, Chairman of the body Movement described “Shittu as a disgrace and embarrassment to the Communication Industry.”
“We are not happy as Shittu declared and shown interest to contest the number one position in Oyo state. This is a slap to the people of the state and practitioners in the ICT Sector. What has he contributed to the development of the state as a serving Minister in Buhari’s cabinet? What achievement has be brought to the Ministry he is overseeing?
“Shittu is a product of bad governance. Electing somebody like him to govern the state will be a great mistake. In order for us not to let him realize his goal, today, we are here to put a stop to his governorship ambition.”
Mr. Adedoyin further urged members of the public interested in the movement to register and mobilize others sharing same goal.
“The Movement’s Social Media Platforms will start running as from next month, Adedoyin assured members of the public.”
