Oduyoye: Lanlehin Still Part Of Us, Makinde Won’t Renege On Agreements Made With Coalition Parties


Babatunde Oduyoye, special adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on political matters and strategy, has said that his boss will not renege on all the agreements he reached with the coalition parties.

OYOINSIGHT.COM recalls that Olufemi Lanlehin of African Democratic Congress, ADC; Sharafadeen Alli of Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, and Bolaji Ayorinde of Social Democratic Party, SDP all dropped their governorship ambitions for Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against Adebayo Adelabu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Lanlehin has threatened to pull over what he referred to as Makinde’s alleged divide-and-rule tactics.

But Oduyoye, a former house of representatives’ member, who spoke in an interview with Nigerian Tribune, explained that “With reference to my good big brother, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, some of the areas of agreement have been respected. That is that an appointment has been made. Other appointments will be made soon. You will recall that in a statement, he alluded to the fact that, perhaps, it was the busy schedule of the governor that is responsible for his inability to finally make the appointments. But I want to assure you that we are in constant touch with them. He (Senator Lanlehin) is still part of this coalition.

“Very soon, some of these appointments will be made. And this does not concern members of the coalition alone. It includes the agitators in the state PDP too.

He added that “There are over 1,000

appointments, if we go by calculation of boards and parastatal agencies. I don’t think the appointments that have been made so far are up to 200. As long as these appointments will be made, members of the PDP will be accommodated. And members of the coalition will not be forgotten.”
