2019: “Why I Didn’t Join ADC, PDP” – Ex-Oyo Governor, Alao-Akala
The former Governor of Oyo State and gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Chief Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala has said the fear of the unknown and perceived ideological differences stopped him from returning to his former political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Alao-Akala made this known while speaking with journalists yesterday, October 8th in Ibadan, declared that he decided not to join PDP or ADC in order to avoid the bitter experience he had while in APC and PDP. According to him, moving to either PDP or ADC after he boycotted the APC governorship primary that produced a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Bayo Adelabu may end up exposing him to another round of unpalatable experience likened to that of ‘from frying pan to fire”. He said:
“I have seen what APC did to us and we must be highly cautious this time. We didn’t join APC because of positions and I told my supporters too that they shouldn’t expect much there. I, however, hinted that if we were offered positions, we would accept them.
“I have been governor before and there is nothing new in my aspiration again if not for the need to heed the clarion call of the masses. I have left the APC and I am now in Action Democratic Party.
“I am his senior in PDP and we left same time. He has gone back to PDP. He is a gifted personality with the rare gift of bringing people together. But maybe because of the people around him, he didn’t listen to advice. I can’t join forces with PDP this time around although no permanent enemy or friends in politics.
