A former Governor of Oyo State and Action Democratic Party (ADP) gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 general elections, Chief Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, on Tuesday said only experienced hand like him should be elected in the forthcoming March 2nd gubernatorial election.
Alao-Akala said that this was necessary to ensure that the people of the state “reap real dividends of democracy”.
He made these declarations while speaking at a meeting of ADP candidates for this year’s general elections, chaired by the State Chairman of the party, Mr Folaranmi Owolabi, in Ibadan, the state capital.
He said his experience as a former governor of the state qualified him as the best for the job come May 29, this year.
He pointed out that experience counts a lot when it comes to administering a state like Oyo.
Alao-Akala said, “Let me tell you that in Oyo state, we don’t need inexperienced person as a governor come May 29. Inexperienced person can’t be a good governor for the state.
“So, don’t vote in an inexperienced politician as the next governor of Oyo state. We must not give Oyo state to an inexperienced hand”.
He added that, “ADP will form masses oriented government, in which the people of the state will be made to benefit positively from the state government policy and programmes unlike the present hardship imposed on the state by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration in the state.”
He alleged that the administration of Governor Abiola Ajimobi had no plan for the state and had been experimenting with series of unfriendly and anti-people policies and programmes, thereby creating untold hardships across the state.
Owolabi, while speaking, said the party remained the only party to beat in the coming general elections in Oyo state.
He then charged members of the party to join hands with the candidates and the party leaders in ensuring the victory of ADP in the elections.
