Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Monday in Ibadan expressed his support for the nomination of Mr Adebayo Shittu as minister by President Muhammadu Buhari, saying he has forgiven him.

He said this when he received representatives of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) in his office.

Ajimobi said that he would never oppose Shittu’s nomination since it was the choice of the president.

“It is the president’s prerogative to select or nominate his ministers but the practice has always been in consultation with the state.”

He, however, said that Buhari was the leader of the party and had told members to allow him select those who would work with him.

“Shittu himself has come to me and has apologised. He knew he was always against me and the party.

“He campaigned against us. To forgive is divine. If we all pray to God to forgive us our sins, then we should learn to forgive others.

“A leader must learn to accommodate and forgive. I have forgiven him.”

Earlier, Mr. Atilola Adewale, who spoke on behalf of the NSCIA delegation, said that the delegation came to plead with the governor to support Shittu’s nomination as minister.

“We ask that the governor forgives Shittu for whatever wrong he might have committed.” (NAN)
