The son of late Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, Idris Abiola-Ajimobi has declared his interest to contest for a legislative seat in Oyo state house of Assembly.
He will be vying for the Ibadan South-West Constituency II seat on the platform of All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
Abiola-Ajimobi made the declaration on Tuesday while addressing party leaders in his constituency in Ibadan.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the son of the former governor also presented to the leaders a letter of interest to contest the seat.
Sources reports that the party leaders led by the chairman in the council, Sunday Babalola, also met with all the aspirants from the local government contesting various elective positions on the platform of the APC.
He said: “It has always been my childhood dream to serve humanity, therefore, presenting myself to serve the good people of Ibadan South-West Constituency II will avail me of the opportunity to achieve this dream.”
The aspirant told the leaders that he was before them as a son, who needed their support and prayers to achieve the dream, adding that he could not do it without them.
The aspirant stated, “I have come before you as your son, to plead for your support and prayers as I cannot do this alone without you.”

“I know that a lot of us here know my father and the legacy he left behind (May his soul rest in perfect peace), and also his grandfather, Alhaji Ganiu Ajimobi, who served the good people of Ibadan South-West Constituency II during the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s regime in the Western Region.
“We shouldn’t let these legacies die. I like to build on his legacies while charting a course to unite our people and bring the dividends of democracy close to them.”
Babalola, in his remarks, welcomed Abiola-Ajimobi into the race, describing it as a good development having people aspiring to serve the people, party and the nation.
