It could be recalled that All Progressives Congress (APC) lost the 2019 Governorship Elections in Oyo State to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

However, the main opposition party in Oyo State, All Progressives Congress (APC), has been deploying various political strategies to ensure that the party return to power in the forthcoming 2023 General Elections.

Considerably, proximity of who will become the 2023 Governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State is still very open, the next governorship candidate of the party may, probably, emerge from any of the two most prominent political camps in the state.

First, the chances of political camp of Florence Ajimobi, who is wife to the immediate former Governor of the state Senator (Late) Isiaka Abiola Ajimobu, to produce the next governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State may not be overemphasized.

Remarkably, the political camp of Florence Ajimobi is supporting the candidacy of Bayo Adelabu who, successfully, bear the flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 Governorship Elections in Oyo State. The excellent performance of Bayo Adelabu in the 2019 Governorship Elections in Oyo State and his administrative expertise may, surely, assist the political camp of Florence Ajimobi to surpass other camps, in the course of winning the 2023 Governorship ticket of All Progressives Congress (APC) for Bayo Adelabu.

Secondly, the proximity of the political camp of former Governor of the State, Christopher Alao Akala, to produce the next governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State could not be underrated.

Interestingly, the political camp of former Governor Alao Akala is, considerably, supporting the governorship ambition of Senator Teslim Folarin. Surely, the political doggedness and grass root mobilization capacity of Senator Teslim Folarin may give the political camp of Alao Akala sufficient opportunity to have him produced as the next gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, come 2023.
