A political advocacy group, Bayo Ojo Frontiers has thrown its weight behind the nomination of Chief Christopher Adebayo Ojo as ministerial nominee. According to the group, the choice underlines the determination of President Muhammadu Buhari to work with the best hands to fix Nigeria.

Speaking during an interactive session with press men in Lokoja, the spokesman for the group, Comrade Isa Ojonimi said Chief Bayo Ojo is one of the legion of intellectuals that have made Kogi proud over the years.

“During the Obasanjo Presidency, Chief Adebayo Ojo who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria was instrumental to the repatriation of the billions of dollars stashed in foreign accounts by the families of the military rulers in the jackboot days.

“Today, we need the savvy of a man with such an international reputation in global jurisprudence. In an era when officials of the last administration have been accused of helping themselves to billions of oil money, we need men of integrity, courage and determination to fight corruption.

“As an organization, be believe in the capacity of Bayo Ojo to add value to the Federal Executive Council of the country in our drive to make Nigeria a better place for all Nigerians,” Ojonimi said.

In a similar vein, a political leader, Mr. Daniel Olowodara said the Okun nation are united behind the consideration of one of them as minister.

“The entire Okun nation has been in jubilant mood since the appointment was made public. Chief Bayo Ojo is a silent achiever who has impacted positively on the society. This appointment is considered a reward for the diligent service Chief Bayo Ojo has continued to render to humanity and his fatherland,” he said.

Chief Bayo Ojo was a Justice Minister under the administration of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
