2019: Ex-Oyo Governor, Alao-Akala Declares Gubernatorial Intention Today



The former Oyo State governor, Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao Akala will today declare his intention to contest governorship election in the forthcoming 2019 general election.

Otunba Akala, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) contested and lost governorship election twice in the state .

He contested as a sitting governor in 2011 and lost to Senator Abiola Ajimobi and similar scenario played out in 2015 when he contested under the platform of Labour Party.

His declaration will certainly clear air on rumours and distort political calculations in the state

The Ogbomoso born politician joined the All progressives Congress last year and had since been receiving calls by his supporters and fans to contest for the gubernatorial position.

It would be recalled that some group of supporters under the leadership of Mr Fola Adeosun some months ago beckoned on him to declare for gubernatorial seat because he is consider the best man for the job.

An inside source told our reporter that “Oga’s declaration is coming after due consultation has been made and he gets positive responses from all corners.

The declaration is expected to hold today at his Bodija residence in Ibadan
