PHOTOS: Alao Akala Grabs Oyo ADP Governorship Ticket
After former Oyo state governor, Alao Akala dumped the APC on the eve of their governorship primaries, his supporters have been waiting to know his next move.
They couldn’t have been fooled into assuming that he would give up on his dream to return to the Agodi government house.
The wait is over for fans of the charismatic Ogbomoso politician.
Akala has since defected to the Action Democratic Party (ADP) and on Sunday afternoon, he was adopted as their governorship candidate practically unopposed.
In the certificate dated Saturday 6th October 2018 which they issued to the former governor, the ADP stated that Alao-Akala had fulfilled the requirements to fly the party’s flag in the 2019 general elections.
Signed by its National Chairman, Engineer Y. Y. Sani and Secretary Dr. James Okoroma, the party revealed that Alao-Akala scored the highest number of votes in the party’s governorship primary held on Saturday.
The unveiling was witnessed by an impressive crowd of supporters for a party many would consider unimportant.
Akala’s media team has now called on his supporters to follow their man as he leads them back to power.
“All faithful and loyal supporters of His Excellency, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala are hereby enjoined to collapse all Structures and Groups within the Alao-Akala political family into the Action Democratic Party (A.D.P) with Immediate effect," a statement by Jeremiah Akande read.
Akande is the Head, New Media and Public Affairs, for the Alao-Akala Campaign Organisation.
