Executive chairman of Ogbomoso North local government and son of former governor Adebayo Alao-Akala, who is the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party, ADP, Hon. Olamiju Alao-Akala, has revealed that he joined his father’s campaign train because he believes in his cause and good vision.
OYO INSIGHT had yesterday reported the defection of Olamiju and his councilors to the ADP.
This newspaper recalled that Olamiju, who shocked many when he appeared at his father’s campaign yesterday, had denied any possibility of joining his father who defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to APC, last October.
Olamiju, who would later move round the town with the campaign team on a road show which started from the Opadoyin Lodge residence of the ADP candidate, explained that “I am back home. Alao-Akala is everybody’s father, not my father alone. He has done it before, he will do it better. He is the most qualified for the job. Vote for him. I am back home, I am now in ADP,” he said.
The rally was a complete standstill for hours as the Ogbomoso-born politician moved across the town and people in their hundreds trooped out to join the roadshow and show their support.
Olamiju would later say that he opted for his father’s campaign based on his belief that his father has a good plan for the people of the state as well as the experience and ability to turn the fortune of the state around.
He later wrote on his social media account:
Ile Baba Omo kii Ba Omo le’ru
I Have Returned Home
Events of recent times in the Oyo State political sphere particularly Ogbomoso North has set tongues wagging but no matter what, blood is always thicker than water, irrespective of what happens, water will always find it’s level.
Without over-flogging a scenario that is in the public domain, I wish to first appreciate God for the grace to be alive and in good health, appreciations also to my biological father, in person of Otun of the Source, Bobajiroro of Owu, Chief Adebayo Alao Akala for raising me to be a man that I am and for giving me everything it takes to be a man in the real sense of the word
Appreciation also to my political father, @abiolaajimobi Aare of Ibadan land, Sheu Abiola Ajimobi and my mother Mrs Florence Ajimobi for all the love and support I have received from Ajimobi family.
I equally appreciate the All Progressives Congress, the APC for giving me the platform to make an entry into the political sphere, utmost appreciation goes to the loving and supporting people of Ogbomoso land, particularly Ogbomoso North local government for believing in me.
To all political stalwarts regardless of political party inclination, I remain indebted to everyone for supporting me all through.
To our Monarchs, religious leaders, social cultural groups, professional bodies, women, youths and everyone, Olamiju Alao Omo Opadoyin Akala has returned home to come and say thank you to everyone.
