Against the insinuation that he was poised to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) should he failed to secure the gubernatorial ticket of the party, a former Oyo State governor, Chief Adebayo Alao- Akala, yesterday said he wont leave the party, stating that he was staying in the ruling party.
In a statement made available to New Telegraph in Ibadan yesterday, Akala was said to have left Ibadan for Abuja to submit his governorship seat nomination forms for the governorship ahead the 2019 election. In a statement signed by the Head, New Media and Public Affairs, Alao- Akala Campaign Organisation, Jeremiah Akande, said that his boss was not considering dropping his ambition or dumping the APC.
The statement read: “The Media and Publicity Directorate of Alao-Akala Campaign Organisation after a careful study of the said report and analysed the disjointed and unfounded information pieced together in the body of the story, came to a professional conclusion that the idea behind the report was a mere publicity stunt aimed at laundering the image of the political party in question.
“Alao-Akala as an experienced politician who has tested the murky waters of politics and who is well schooled in the rules of engagement is too busy with his campaign activities and will not engage in any form of media war or propaganda involving any group, body or political party.”
