Alli: Oyo ADC Crisis Is Normal, It’ll Be Over Soon


One of the governorship aspirants on the platform of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Barr Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli has described the crisis within the party as a normal thing.

According to Alli, who is a former secretary to the state government of Oyo State, the crisis is being orchestrated by detractors and other political parties jittery of the emergence of a party that came not too long a time but has dominated the political landscape.

Alli, who disclosed this while speaking on a radio programme, “Bottom Line” on Impact Business Radio in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, noted that the problem will soon be over as it is just a mere political game among brothers of the same political family. 

“That people are complaining shows that they want a resolution. ADC is so well accepted in all the geo-political zones of the state and everybody wants to belong, this is good for the polity,” he added.

Saying that the current scenario in the ADC is different from what happened in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he explained that”When we went into the PDP, we were assured that the impunity that chased us out the other time will not repeat itself, but alas, we discovered it was a deceit. For instance, we had a constitutionally conducted congress, somebody went to Abuja to tinker with the result, how then are we sure that if primaries are eventually conducted, the same system will not apply?”

Speaking on godfatherism in politics, Alli said he has tremendous respect for elders and leaders of the party, who he described as his fathers.

Alli retorted, “First let me say that the emergence of a governorship candidate in the ADC will go through democratic means which will be determined by our party. Secondly, I do not know of anybody closer to Senator Ladoja among the contenders than myself, having being together since 1994. So everyone of us is close to him.

“The thing is just that, with all humility, I feel I’m more experienced in the executive cadre of government, having held different positions at that level – as a local government chairman at age twenty seven, later as Secretary to the state government, Chief of staff and Chairman, Oodua conglomerate. 

“I have equally served in various capacities in the management of political parties, all these should serve as a major experience to lead the state, the experience which is rare among others.”
