A gubernatorial hopeful under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has frontally scolded the incumbent Governor Seyi Makinde and described him as running a rudderless administration, thereby taking the state back to the pre-2011 days.
Adelabu, therefore, sent words to Makinde that come 2023, he would defeat him roundly and put a final end to the state of anarchy driven by thuggery and other nefarious escapades.
At a Press Conference held at his the Adebayo Adelabu Foundation Secretariat, Jericho, Ibadan on Monday, Adelabu noted that he had observed the deficiencies of the Makinde administration and found out that the governor lacked understanding of Government Business, which, according to him, contrasted a trade undertaken for personal emoluments or aggrandizement.
“It takes society for its basis and reason and experiences for its guide. It takes society for its basis because it is the centre towards which people gravitate for collaboration and cooperation in order to achieve progress and happiness. This is the reason why the business is divided or expanded into Ministeries, Agencies and Departments in order to serve Humanity,” he said.
Adelabu, who disclosed that he would hold a mega rally to formally declare his intention on May 16, 2022, stressed that insecurity in the prevalence of hooliganism is the hallmark of the administration, lamenting that people of the state could no longer enjoy sound sleep which, he maintained, they relished in the eight years of the late Senator Abiola Ajimobi administration.
“I am a man that abhors violence and thuggery. I vehemently abhor the dictates of a one man dictatorship. Myself and our great party wanted a land of peace in Oyo State just as our late leader, H.E Abiola Ajimobi abhorred violence and brought peace to bear in Oyo State for the eight years he governed the state. May his soul continue to rest in peace,” he stated.
