The Labour Party in Oyo State has informed Governor Abiola Ajimobi to start preparing for his exit at the Agodi Government House, as the electorate are ready to see him off in the forthcoming guber poll in the state.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the party’s Director of Media and Publicity, Hon. Ibrahim Taiwo and made available to journalists.
According to the statement, the combination of Alao-Akala and Sharafadeen Alli as governorship and deputy governorship candidates respectively has sent jitters down the spines of the opposition.
“The fact that two major contending parties in Oyo State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Accord Party, AP have been lobbying round to woo Chief Adebayo Alao Akala, our gubernatorial candidate for the 2015 elections is suggestive that he, Akala is the most credible and the man to beat at the elections.”
“Senator Rashidi Ladoja, we recall, had said in some newspapers last week that he was ready to concede the leadership of his party in Oyo North Central Senatorial District to Alao Akala if he decided to join his party while the state chairman of the APC, Chief Akin Oke lamented that Akala would regret his actions.”
The party wondered why the lamentations if Akala refused their carrots and advised the duo to concede openly that the gubernatorial election in the state is already a forgone conclusion in favour of the Labour Party.
