Former Governor Alao Akala has said not even the president elect, Gen. Buhari will be able to save the incumbent Governor of Oyo State as he will be defeated woefully come Saturday, April 11 when the Governorship elections will take place across the country. Akala says even if Buhari comes to campaign for him as scheduled, the governor will still lose the election. It will be recalled that Akala decamped from PDP when he lost in the party’s primaries to Labour Party and has vowed to do anything in his power to get him to the number one seat again. What he said;
“Using Buhari’s name rather than his (Ajimobi) achievements is the greatest undoing a sinking governor can do to win at all cost. Buhari did not award contract at questionable amount or neglect meritocracy for mediocrity.
“Ajimobi is the most corrupt governor in the history of the state while Buhari is the only former head of state without a house in Abuja and the only former leader without an oil bloc. How then does Ajimobi think using Buhari’s name to campaign will guarantee him victory?”
On Buhari visiting the State, Akala said;
“To save Ajimobi from the imminent defeat in Saturday’s election, plans have been concluded to bring Buhari to Ibadan on Wednesday under the guise of ‘Thank you tour’ to shore up support for the drowning anti-masses governor but we believe that just like nothing was able to stop Buhari’s victory last week, Ajimobi is on his way out of the Government House.”
