Alao-Akala joins Oyo APC gov race

A former governor of Oyo State, Adebayo Alao-Akala, on Wednesday declared his ambition to run for the state’s governorship in 2019, thereby joining dozens of politicians jostling for the seat on the platform of the All Progressives Congress. Alao-Akala was deputy governor to Rashidi Ladoja but replaced him in January 2016 when Ladoja was impeached until December 2016 when a court ruling declared the impeachment as illegal.

Alao-Akala returned as governor for four years between 2007 and 2011 after winning the governorship election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party. He lost his re-election bid to the present Governor Abiola Ajimobi but re-contested in 2015 on the platform of the Labour Party. The former governor formerly joined the APC in 2017.

His declaration followed a clarion call by his associates, the Akala Support Group, who held a meeting on March 29, 2018, at the Premier Hotel, Ibadan, where they asked him to consider running for the state’s governorship seat because of his political and administrative experience.
