A message from Akala camp also reads:
For Immediate Release.
- After careful Consideration of the results of the last Presidential, Senatorial and House of Representatives elections and in furtherance of the Development, Progress and Peace of Oyo state.
Far reaching decisions have to be taken and actualized.
The ADP after holding series of high level consultations across Oyo state after the last General elections has come to the conclusion that the sanctity, integrity and progress of Oyo cannot and must not be compromised.
We have felt the pulse of the people whose support has brought us this far, it is important that we dance when they play the tunes.
We have given deep thoughts to the furture of this state and have realized that not much can be realized in Isolation.
Hence the need to team up with the party that puts the interest of the masses on top of its priority list.
Looking at the results of the last elections, we have realized the need to restrategise and ensure that Oyo state is not left out in the cold.
To this effect, the Oyo state A.D.P and the Akala Campaign Organisation hereby call on all our Members, teeming supporters and well wishers across the state to come on board in this move towards Positioning our state for better National Interest.
Chief Wale Ohu
Akala Campaign Organisation.
