Oyo Deputy Governor, Ex-Gov. Alao-Akala, Battle For 2019 Guber Ticket



The race for Agodi government house of Oyo State is becoming interesting as the senator representing Oyo North Senatorial District, Dr. Adbulfatai Buhari and the state Deputy Governor Alakole Adeyemo during the week joined the endless list of aspirants jostling to succeed Senator Abiola Ajimobi.

None of them has openly declared his interest but it was gathered that they are making underground moves to appease to  party members and those that matter.

Also, supporters of Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, the former governor of Oyo State have started campaigning on social media for the return of their principal in 2019 as the governor of the state.

The Ogbomoso born retired police officer who ruled Oyo State for five years was said to have also been contacting friends and allies, seeking advice on whether to contest in 2019 or not.

Although, some of his close aides who used to run errand for him on political matters are no longer with him, he still believes he can win the election if given the APC ticket.
