Former Oyo State governor, Adebayo Alao-Akala yesterday told the incumbent governor of the state, Abiola Ajimobi that using the name of the President-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhamma
du Buhari won’t get him re-elected.
The Labour Party gubernatorial candidate’s opinion was conveyed in a statement released by the Director of Public Affairs of his Campaign Organisation, Oludare Ogunlana.
“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.
“The APC administration is anti-masses as it has inflicted pains on the people as against its campaign promises in 2011.
“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?”
He also alleged that the APC is planning to bring Buhari to the state to campaign on Ajimobi’s behalf.
“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,” he said.
