We Have No Pact With You — ADC, ZLP, ADP Tell Makinde


Some major opposition parties have come to say that they are not into any alignment talks with the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Engr Seyi Makinde ahead of next month’s governorship election.

OYO INSIGHT had exclusively reported how former governor and governorship  candidate of the Action Democratic Party, ADP, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala had convened a meeting of major opposition parties last week.

While the candidates of the African Democratic Congress, ADC and that of the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, Sen. Olufemi Lanlehin and Barr Sharafadeen Alli respectively were in attendance, Makinde was absent, without representation.

Only yesterday, Makinde, at a press conference, said he was open to alignment talks.

But in a counter press statement by the spokesperson of the three political parties, they denied any agreement with Makinde and PDP.


The attentions of ZLP, ADC & ADP have been drawn to a press release emanated from Oyo State PDP and her candidate Engr Seyi Makinde with misinformation that Otunba Alao-Akala of ADP, Barrister Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli of ZLP and Sen Olufemi Lanlehin of ADC have agreed to work for PDP.

As much as ADC, ADP and ZLP leadership are interested in working with one another including PDP to dislodge the ruling APC from Agodi Government House of Oyo State come March 9th, 2019 due to bad governance and anti-masses policies, we wish to inform the Oyo state electorates that there is no pact yet with any gubernatorial candidate for support in the coming Elections as other candidates are also eminently qualified but we are of the opinion that no sacrifice is too much but not by creating disharmony within the ranks of opposition leaders who are accomplished and well established candidates with proven track records of service to Oyo state citizens.

We can say authoritatively that discussion is ongoing among Otunba Adebayo Alao Akala of ADP, Barrister Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli of ZLP, Engr Seyi Makinde of PDP and Senator Olufemi Lanlehin of ADC and no one has been adopted as sole candidate knowing quite alright that the presidential and National Assembly elections is not a yardstick to measure both PDP and APC popularity and acceptance to Oyo state masses.

We urge people of Oyo state to discountenance the news from PDP and await authentic information from the campaign organization of the various gubernatorial candidates or the parties for official source for any alliance or coalition.

Thank you.
