Akala was part of the coalition formed that Produced Governor Seyi Makinde as the Governor of the state. Though Alao Akala was later backed out of the coalition. The coalition later comprises of the Former Governor of the state, Senator Rasidi Ladoja, The Governorship of the zenith Party, Femi Lanlehin and Governor Seyi Makinde himself.

Few weeks to the election, Akala held another meeting with All Progressives Congress APC Chieftains both in the state and at the national levels. Akala alongside with his people, defected to the APC, after the meeting he held with the Leaders of the Party had been successful.

Ever since then Akala has remained with the APC. Akala may be interested in contesting the forthcoming election. But it is better he steps aside from contesting the Governorship election in Oyo State. Akala may not be as Popular as he was before, so it's better he stay away from contesting Governorship polls in the state.

Why Akala Must Stay Away From Contesting Oyo State Governorship Polls In 2023

Alao Akala must stay from contesting Oyo State Governorship Polls. The reason is that Akala has lost his Popularity in the state. Akala cannot get the bulk votes from Ibadan, he needs the bulk votes of Okeogun and some part of Ibadan and bulk votes from Ogbomosho before he could win election.

Akala has lost his Popularity in Okeogun and Ogbomosho during the last Governorship election. Akala's defection has made People not to have interest in him anymore. Some are of the opinion that Akala trade his People

The only election Akala could win convincingly now is National house of representative, Abuja. That is the only election he can win for now. Even he couldn't win National house Senate, Abuja. Therefore, Akala should away from contesting Oyo State Governorship Polls.

Another Point is that, Age is not on his side. Akala, If not more than seventy years of Age by 2023, He will be very close to seventy by then. Electorates will Prefer a vibrant and energetic Youth to vote when it is time. Akala should desist from contesting Governorship polls.

Few local Government will determine his Faith if he contested for National house of Assembly. Like Three or four Local Government will determine his Faith but it's better Akala should not bother himself contesting at all. It is very ridiculous that a whole Former Governor is now agitating for the national assembly.

This is just an opinion, This just an opinion anyone having contrary opinions should criticize the write up constructively without insults. Kindly Like, Dhr
