APC has no Anointed Candidate for 2023 Guber poll -Akala refutes Newspaper Report

Prominent All Progressive Party (APC) chieftain and former Oyo state Governor; Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, on Monday refuted claims that he has an anointed flag bearer for the 2023 Oyo State Gubernatorial election.

Akala was reacting to a news report that claimed the former Oyo State governor has a favourite amongst the APC candidates. To refute the report, he issued a Monday statement calling it a failed attempt to soil his name and destroy his hard-earned reputation and described the publication as “full of lies, misinformation and fake news”.

The statement: “for the umpteenth and the last time, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala is making it clear and stating it unequivocally that he is a father to all and has no bias or personal interest in any of the intending gubernatorial aspirant in the state as he operates an open-door policy and will never discriminate against any member of the party, no matter the status of who is involved.”

“The interest and the choice of the unwavering party members is what he will stand with come rain, come shine and will henceforth not take with kid gloves any publication or comment linking him with any of the gubernatorial aspirants as being his preferred choice.”

“Akala advises intending gubernatorial aspirants on the platform of the party to desist from actions that can undermine a united APC in Oyo State, but should rather get to work and meet with party faithful who will form the bulk of those to decide who flies the flag of the party at the 2023 polls a decision he will be bounded by once it is decided at the party primaries.”

“Alao-Akala who is also the chairman, Elders Advisory Council of the APC in Oyo State called on leaders, elders and party members to discountenance the publication in its entirety and urged that all members not “be disillusioned or discouraged by a petty publication of this nature as the source and sponsor of this particular offensive write up is already known to him.”

He added that he will not hesitate to expose those behind such attacks to the unity and cohesion of the party if they don’t desist from such acts.
