A strong member of Action Democratic Party (ADP), in Oyo State, Honourable Kehinde Oloya has described as falsehood and fallacious the story making it round in the state that the governorship candidate of the party for the 2019, election, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala has concluded plans to work for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Candidadate, Engineer Seyi Makinde to emerge Governor of the state.
Reacting to the issue, Oloya said Otunba Akala never had such plan to work for the PDP adding that the ADP is prepared to win the governorship and other positions in the election.
“The ADP is fully prepared for the elections and we are going to emerge victorious. Our governorship candidate Otunba Akala has no plan to work for PDP, Akala himself is an institution a great leader in politics and governance. He is the most experienced governor of the state. we are the winning team in the elections.”
Honourable Oloya, a two term member of the state House of Assembly representing Ibadan North East 1 constituency while commenting on the coming election cautioned against vote buying, saying, the practice is capable of undermining the integrity of the Nigerian elections and electoral institutions.
According to him, the vote buying issue was a result of the do-or-die spirit of some selfish politicians who want to clinch power at all cost.
The lawmaker who is contesting for House of Representatives seat to represent Ibadan South East and North East Federal Constituency in the state said the development could only be checked and controlled by reducing drastically numbers of political parties for election in the country.
He urged the people of the state and his constituency to vote him and other candidates of the ADP into office in the election, assuring them of prompt dividends of democracy.
