“We can’t discourage anyone from contesting but if the party will support anyone it has to be from the national body and  so for now, we are not interfering in the process.

“ If members feel they are qualified, they can contest; it  also depends on whether the party will zone some positions or not,”  Oke said.

NAN reports that Oyo State has former senate leader, Teslim Folarin and Sen .Abdulfatah Buhari as old members of the upper chamber.

Senator-elect, Kola Balogun, is a new member from the state.
