Oyo Speaker Deflects Question On Coalition — “I Don’t Want To Have Grey Hair”


In an apparent move to refuse answering any questions on the fulfilment or otherwise, of promises made to the coalition leaders in the Oyo State political arrangement, by Governor  Seyi Makinde, Oyo Speaker, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin, blatantly deflected the question.

Ogundoyin, when asked by the anchor of Fresh FM’s flagship sociopolitical programme, “Political Circuit”, Mayor Isaac Brown, while guesting on the programme last Saturday, on “the relationship between the governor and the leadership of the coalition partners that brought him in had retorted, “all that we discussed this morning, we just scratched the surface of what my position entails, but I will say in order for me not to have grey hair in such an early age, let me even first finish the work at hand.”

Speaking further, Ogundoyin, who represents Ibarapa East State Constituency said: “I can’t over extend myself to the detriment of my job description as the Speaker of the House”.

When pressed to specifically comment on when last he spoke to Senator Olufemi Lanlehin and Barrister Sarafadeen Alli, governorship candidates of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) and Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) respectively in the 2019 polls, given his advertised closeness to former Oyo State governor, Senator Rasidi Ladoja, Ogundoyin had answered that: “during the fast, I extended my greetings to all of them, Barrister Sarafa Alli, Senator Lanlehin, I carry everybody along, as much as possible”.

In a bold move to flatly deny his involvement in the coalition arrangement, he pointed out; “when the coalition was been made, I was in Ibarapa running around for my campaign”.

OYO INSIGHT recalls that governorship candidates of the ADC, ZLP and SDP, had in an unprecedented move, agreed to a coalition which saw them drop their ambition, to support the candidature of Engr Makinde, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which eventually translated into his victory, in the 9 March, 2019 election.
