IBADAN–A former governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, yesterday said only God and the electorate would decide who became the next governor of the state in 2015.
Alao-Akala told newsmen in Ogbomoso that “the people had tasted governance from both sides of the coin” and would, with the help of God, determine who to vote in as governor.
Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State had on Friday at the swearing-in ceremony of the local government caretaker chairmen said he would contest for a second term.
“He only expressed himself. He is entitled to his opinion but Almighty God and the electorates will decide who governs. All that the people want is someone who will rule and change their standard of living, someone who will ensure that the people have food on their table,” Alao-Akala said.
Alao-Akala said the present administration had only succeeded in expanding ready-made roads and also turned home owners into tenants through the destruction of their houses.
He also said he was not aware of any crisis in the state chapter of the PDP.
Alao-Akala, who admitted that there were some aggrieved party members, added that the problem would be resolved soon.
The former governor said he was interested in building the party and would not work against such efforts.
