Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate in Oyo state, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala on Tuesday said only experienced hand like him should be elected as the next governor of the state for the people of the state to reap real dividends of democracy.
Otunba Alao-Akala stated this in Ibadan while speaking at a meeting of all ADP candidates for this year’s general elections chaired by the State Chairman of the party, Mr Folaranmi Owolabi.
The ADP governorship candidate and former governor of the state said being the only tested and trusted hand among all those presently contesting the governorship seat, his.experience as a former governor of the state qualified him as the best for the job come May 29, this year.
Otunba Alao-Akala pointed out that experience counts a lot when it comes to administering a state like Oyo, saying, without the needed experience, no matter how well read you may be, you can’t perform. Experience is the best teacher.
“Let me tell you that in Oyo state, we don’t need inexperience person as a governor come May 29. Inexperienced person can be a good governor for the state. So, don’t vote in an inexperienced politician as the next governor of Oyo state. We must not give Oyo state to an inexperienced hand,” he said.
Speaking further, Otunba Alao-Akala said come May 29, this year,
ADP will form masses oriented government in which the people of the state will be made to benefit positively from the state government policy and programmes unlike the present hardship imposed on the state by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration in the state.
According to Otunba Alao-Akala, the administration of Governor Abiola Ajimobi has no plan for the state and has been experimenting with series of unfriendly and anti people policies and programmes thereby creating untold hardships across the state.
In his remarks at the meeting, Oyo state ADP Chairman, Mr Folaranmi Owolabi said the party remains the only party to beat in the coming general elections in Oyo state. saying, by the Special grace of God, ADP will win Oyo state in this year’s elections.
