A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Hon. Muftau Open Salawu has revealed that the late Abiola Ajimobi knew former governor Alao Akala is in the best position to lead the party in Oyo State.
Salawu, a former Special Adviser to the late Ajimobi, revealed this in a recent interview.
According to him, this is evident in the appointment of Akala as the chairman of the party’s reconciliation committee in the state by Ajimobi before his death.
“First and foremost, there is no leadership crisis in Oyo APC. The party has a chairman, Chief Akin Oke. Talking of state leadership, like the one late Ajimobi occupied before he died, then we have to involve Chief Adebayo Alao Akala who, by all virtues, fits into that position.
“He is a former governor. In politics, a lot of people protest and put up agitation but they all know that as long as Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala remains in APC, he is the leader either pronounced or not. Those contesting leadership don’t have his profile.
“As God would have it, Late Ajimobi asked Alao Akala to anchor the reconciliation committee. It shows that he knew he (was) is the best for the job,”he said.
