Governor Seyi Makinde is çontesting the 2023 Presidential Polls in oyo State for second term in office. However, different Governorship candidates from different Political Parties, may show interest in 2023 Governorship Polls to Contest against Governor Seyi Makinde and take the mantle of Leadership from him. Recalled that Governor Seyi Makinde did not win the 2018 Governorship Polls on a Platter of Gold. Governor Seyi's victory in 2019, involved intervention of some Leaders from different Opposition Parties.
Governor Makinde won the 2019 Governorship Polls through the coalition. The coalition was formed between Seyi Makinde who was the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Oyo State then and the former Governor of the State, Senator Rasheed Ladoja, Senator Femi Lanlehin and the Governorship candidate of the Zenith Labour Party ZLP, Sarafadeen Ali.
The coalition was successful in 2019 because of the Promises Governor Seyi Makinde made to the Political Leaders, he formed the coalition with, otherwise Governor Makinde wouldn't have won the 2019 Governorship Polls. The All Progressives Congress APC would have won the Governorship Election, if not the interventions of other Political Leaders in the state.
Though, Most of the Leaders that formed the coalition with Governor Seyi Makinde in 2019 Governorship Polls have dumped their various Political Parties for the All Progressives Congress APC. The Governorship candidate of Zenith Labour Party ZLP, Senator Sarafadeen Ali, along with other leaders have dumped the Party for the All Progressives Congress APC.
Meanwhile, As soon as Governor Seyi Makinde took mantle of leadership in Oyo State, he has embarked on Projects that has brought development to the state. But the Governor may not be able to win the next Governorship Polls, due to some Crisis in his Party, PDP. The 2023 Governorship Polls in Oyo State may likely take place between Governor Seyi Makinde and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in the state. Though, apart from Candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in the State, other Governorship candidate may also participate in the Polls but the main Opposition Party to the PDP, is the All Progressives Congress APC in the state.
Meet The Top APC Leader In Oyo State Who Is Capable Of Taking Leadership From Makinde
The Senator representing Oyo central Senatorial district, Senator Teslim Folarin is the All Progressives Congress APC leader who is capable of taking the mantle of leadership from Governor Seyi Makinde. Teslim Folarin defected from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP to the All Progressives Congress APC. He was the Senate Leader under the Platform of the Party.
Recalled that, The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in 2019 Governorship Polls, was Adebayo Adelabu. Though Adelabu's Personality helped him in the last Governorship Polls. But he couldn't win the 2019 Governorship Polls because he is a juvenile Politician. Though, He is popular in Oyo State Politics but lacks Political experience. Adelabu is Popular like his grandfather, Adegoke Adelabu and the Personality has helped him, in the last Governorship Polls but he couldn't win the election.
With all the resources used in favour of Adelabu during the 2019 Governorship Polls, he lost the election to PDP. This shows that Adelabu can't win the Governorship Polls. The APC leader who can challenge Makinde in 2023 Governorship Polls is Senator Teslim Folarin. Teslim Folarin has Political experience to win the election. He is also an influential Politician in the Politics of Oyo State. If the PDP can give him the Governorship ticket in the Party, he may likely wrestle Power from Makinde in 2023 Polls.
Senator Teslim Folarin has the nitty gritty to win the 2023 Governorship Polls. Adelabu should be given another Political Post before 2023, for him not to Contest Governorship Polls. Any Governorship candidate who is not a grassroot Politician cannot defeat Governor Seyi Makinde in 2023 Governorship Polls. Seyi Makinde has developed Oyo State since his inception as Governor of the State.This is just an opinion, anyone having contrary opinions should criticize the write up constructively without insults.
