Dr. Olusola Ayandele, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, says Ibadan, the Oyo state capital deserved special recognition.

Ayandele who spoke with journalists on Wednesday in Ibadan explained that this was necessary to upgrade the existing infrastructure in Ibadan and build new ones.

Ayandele has, however, said the existing infrastructural facilities built during the pre and post-independence era in Ibadan, which served as the seat of the defunct western region, had already been overwhelmed.

He said the only solution to ensure that the infrastructural facilities in Ibadan meet the need of the people is for the federal government was to give the ancient city special recognition

Ayandele while speaking during the inauguration of his support committee ahead of the 2023 election for the Oyo South Senatorial district, said the only solution to ensure that the infrastructural facilities in the city meet the need of the people is for the federal government to give it special recognition.

According to him: “Yes. Ibadan deserved special recognition. That is one of the things I will clamour for when I get there.

“Because Ibadan served as the seat of the whole of Western Nigeria up to Idi Oro in Lagos during the pre and post-independent periods. They created Ondo, Ogun and Oyo states. Ekiti and Osun were created out of these states.

“So, the social amenities here have remained the same since then. So, there should be special recognition for Ibadan for the existing infrastructure to be upgraded. We need to build new ones too.
