It is obvious that the removal of his Son who was imposed on Ogbomoso populace by the power that be is a nemesis of Akala/ Ladoja saga other illegal action taken when he was in power.

“We appreciate his function and achievements when he was opportuned to holdsway as Governor of Oyo state, but we want him to please stop misleading people with faint hope of ruling Oyo state again, its a dream that can no longer materialize.”
We believe that our party’s candidates are credible and they are people whose integrity can be vouched for”
