The gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in Oyo state and former governor of the state, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, has debunked rumours he is not serious about his ambition and is only working towards ensuring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate in the state, Engineer Seyi Makinde come out victorious.
”I am working for no one! At my age, it will be foolhardy if I don’t know what I’m doing,” Alao-Akala stresses.
“I am not working for Seyi Makinde of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) or any candidate from any party. I told them already. Those spreading the rumour only want to use our name. If they want to be associated with us, they should join our party, the ADP.
“In Oyo state politics, who is Seyi? In fact, if we are to make a ranking, Seyi cannot even make the top 20. Politics is not all about money, Alao-Akala states.”
The governorship and states houses of assembly elections have been shifted by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to March 9.
Apart from Seyi Makinde and Alao-Akala, some of the other top candidates include Saheed Ajadi of Accord Party and Adebayo Adelabu of the APC.
