The Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate in last Ekiti State governorship elections, Otunba Segun Adewale, has advised all opposition parties in Osun State to jointly present a candidate on the “most accepted and popular party” and team up by a way of forming alliance before going into the September 22 governorship poll in Osun State.
Speaking to journalists in Lagos, Adewale advised that that all the major players involved in the forthcoming election including Alhaji Moshood Adeoti of the ADP, Senator Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must be ready to work out an alliance and present a single candidate if at all they are ready to win and send those they don’t want away from powers. He said that when he contested for governorship election in Ekiti State, there were possibilities for other parties to work together to prevent All Progressives Congress (APC) from gaining power but all parties involved went to the battle field individually and they all lost to federal might.
His words: “I am of the opinion that for APC to be defeated and for Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and his anointed candidate, Mr Gboyega Oyetola to be sent away from Osun State, I will advise all opposition political parties to jointly present a candidate on the ‘most accepted and popular party’ and team up by a way of forming alliance before going into the election on September 22.
“Any party that must take lead in the arrangement must be able to generate enough resources to match the ruling APC. What is important at this moment is how to rescue Osun from further poverty, debt, unemployment and executive rascality.
I therefore urge all actors to put aside their ego and work together for the sake of the Osun people at this critical time.” “All what the parties involved needs to do is to set up a committee, to pick the most popular political party with the wider and formidable structure, that the Osun people can vote for; then sign Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on power sharing arrangement which should be fairly distributed and accordingly. The joy of each of them in the end should be that none of them lost out to the APC.”
