Labour Party gubernatorial candidate in Oyo State, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, has dismissed the rumour being peddled around the state that he has either gone into alliance with the All Progressives Congress (APC) or is considering stepping down for any gubernatorial candidate in the April 11 election.
Akala in a press statement signed by his campaign organisation’s Director of Public Affairs, Comrade Oludare Ogunlana, said: “The information making waves is just a figment of imagination of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is already jittery about losing the governorship election.
“We in Labour Party have not at anytime neither engaged nor entered into an agreement of merging with any political parties as we are confident of winning the next election. This is because people of the state have also resolved to effect the change in Oyo State by relieving Senator Abiola Ajimobi-led administration of their inhuman administration and returning the government with human face of Alao Akala.”
Akala advised that “the people of Oyo State should also ensure proper identification of the Assistant Registration Officers and other ad-hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission posted to their domains as many of them are paid agents of the APC who were injected into the system in connivance with some bad eggs at the state INEC office.”
The former governor also urged the people and security agencies in the state to ensure proper monitoring of the distribution of election materials, so as to avoid the occurrence of what transpired in the last election when election materials meant for some areas were tampered with.
While reiterating his commitment to effectively serve the people and restore the state to the path of economic prosperity, Akala stated: “I am committed to ensure a greater Oyo State, and this can only be achieved through effective administration and prudent management of resources as well as infrastructural build-up, formulation and implementation of programmes and policies that would make life better for all and sundry.”
He also promised to ensure proper beautification of Ibadan and ensure the interior and rural roads in major towns and cities are given facelift, so as to make them enhance growth and development in the state.
He however urged the people of the state to vote for the gubernatorial and state House of Assembly candidates of the Labour Party for genuine development and effective administration that will return smiles to the faces of the people.
