OYO GUBER: ‘Adebayo Adelabu Will Emerge As The Elected Governor’– Akala


Former governor of Oyo state, Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala and Senator Abdulfatai Buhari have expressed optimism that the APC candidate, will emerge as the elected governor.

Akala until last week was the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) before he dropped his ambition to support the APC candidate, Chief Adelabu.

Also, Hon. Olusegun Odebunmi representing Ogo-Oluwa/Surulere federal constituency who was returned to the red chambers for the third term during the last Presidential/National Assembly poll described Saturday’s Governorship/House Assembly election as very peaceful and full of hopes for the APC candidates.

Hon. Odebunmi commended the people for their turnout and peaceful conduct during the poll.

While admitting noticeable apathy towards the election, the former Governor Akala, Senator Buhari and Hon. Odebunmi said that people who are yet to come out to vote will eventually show up before the end of the voting exercise.

Similarly, the Deputy governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), Hon. Georgina Ajibi attributed the low turnout of voters in Ogbomoso North to the coalition of political parties in Oyo state.

She said “our people are disillusioned about the alliance among political parties, and that is the reason for the apathy”.

While speaking to our correspondent after casting her vote at Unit19, Ward 10, Oke Elerin primary school in Ogbomoso North , Ajibi  said people have decided to stay back at home because of the delusions caused by the merger of various political parties.

However, Senator Elect of Oyo North, Abdul-Fatai Buhari said the coalition of parties is not the determining factor of the low turnout of people.

Buhari affirmed that Akala’s alignment with the All Progressive Congress (APC) is a good omen for the party.

He said; “I pray and I hope my party’s candidate wins the election today.

“The turnout is a bit low, compared to what we had two weeks ago.

“We have a Candidate here who decided to support APC. Whether you like it or not, he has a sizeable number of supporters, and it is good for us.

“I can assure you, in my senatorial district, Oke-Ogun, we are going to be victorious.

“Oyo north is a determinant of the election; it had always been the determiner of election since 1999.

“Any vote that comes from Oyo North determines the election, because Oyo South and Oyo Central will be shared among Ibadan people.”

Similarly, Adebayo Alao-Akala expressed optimism that the APC candidate, Adebayo Adelabu will emerge as the elected governor.

He said that people who are yet to come out to vote will eventually show up before the end of the voting exercise.
