Politicians will always go for their respective interest. It’s still a misery while Gov. Ajimobi trade Senator Monsurat Sunmonu for former Senate leader Teslim Folarin.

Though Summonu has been fortunate and lucky in her political sojourn. She got back to Nigeria in 2010 after over 20 years in the United Kingdom and got elected into Oyo State House of Assembly in 2011.

She became the first Female Speaker of the House. She also became the first Female senator from Oyo State when she got the mandate of Oyo Central people to represent the zone in Abuja in 2015 on the platform of APC.

She defected in 2018 with other Unity Forum members to ADC. It will be a straight battle between her and Senator Teslim Folarin of APC and Chief Bisi Ilaka of PDP.

Though honorable Temitope Olatoye (SUGAR) of ADP is also in the picture. Sunmonu and Ilaka are both from Oyo town.

They will share the vote in that zone while Folarin and Olatoye (SUGAR) are both from Ibadan.

Folarin to have his way in this zone; Surulere and Ogo Oluwa at Ogbomosho zone will surely be the battleground.

The influence of Buhari and Atiku candidacy will also help both APC and PDP candidates since the election is on the same day.

Oyo Central comprises 5 Local Government in Ibadan, 4 Local Government in Oyo town and 2 Local Government in Ogbomonsho area.
