Former Governor of Oyo State and Action Democratic Party (ADP) gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 general elections in the state, Chief Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, on Tuesday declared that the state was in a serious mess.
According to him, 90 per cent of the projects executed by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) under the leadership of Governor Abiola Ajimobi are anti-people.
Alao-Akala made this declaration while speaking at the official launch of his campaign and inauguration of his campaign team held in Ibadan, the state capital.
At the launch were his wife, Oluwakemi Alao-Akala, deputy gubernatorial candidate, Professor Abideen Olaiya, Oyo South, North and Central candidates, Dr. Fola Akinosun, Mr. Ahmed Salaudeen and Hon. Temitope Olatoye respectively among others.
The former governor said he was seeking another opportunity to govern the state with a rescue mission to reposition the state for the betterment of the people.
He said “My heart aches because 90 per cent of the outgoing government’s policies, programmes and projects are best described as anti-people which leave our people in pain and despondency. Instead of criticising, I made myself available to guide the incumbent government on how best to run proactive and pro-people governance but the driver lacks the required goodwill.
“Today, the major sectors of our economy, which are education, health, agriculture and environment have been either neglected or bastardised. Oyo state is in a serious mess.
