Gov. Seyi Makinde won the 2019 Governorship election in Oyo State on a platter of Gold. Governor Seyi Makinde contested against the All Progressives Congress APC candidate, Adebayo Adelabu but Gov. Makinde won the election. Gov. Makinde wouldn't have won the election easily like that, despite all the hands that were put to desk, if not for the misdeeds of his Predecessor, The former Governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi when he was the Governor.
The Oyo State People most especially Ibadan People don't vote one Person two terms to serve them. Oyo People always voted any elected officers ones and not twice. Governor Makinde won the Governorship election with the help of the Former Governor, Rasheed Ladoja and chief Femi Lanlehin through the coalition formed.
Though The coalition formed after the Governorship election is no more relevant. Governor Seyi Makinde and chief Rasheed Ladoja have Parted ways. Some Promises were made before they formed the coalition which some were fulfilled and some were not.
There is no argument that Governor Seyi Makinde is Popular but not only Governor Seyi Makinde's Popularity made him won the Last Governorship Election in Oyo State but he won the election with the support of some notable leaders in Oyo State. The people of Oyo State are already tired the then administration and they are looking for the way forward. So, they see Makinde as the alternative then and they voted for him.
This APC Man May Likely Be The One To Wrestle Power From Makinde In Oyo State.
The candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in the last Governorship polls in Oyo State, Adebayo Adelabu may likely be the one that will wrestle power from Governor Seyi Makinde. Adebayo Adelabu is a grandson to Alhaji Adegoke Adelabu popularly called Penkelemesi. Adelabu should have won the last Governorship in Oyo State but due to some of the circumstances beyond his control, he couldn't win the election.
The Good records of his Grand father in Ibadan will Speak for him in any election. Adebayo Adelabu has been using his grandfather Personalities and he will continue using it. Adebayo Adelabu retired as deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN. The position he held till the time he contested the Governorship polls in Oyo State.
Adebayo Adelabu will still use his Personality to wrestle power from the State Governor, Seyi Makinde. Meaning Makinde may not return as the Governor of Oyo State for his second term. If Adelabu should be given the Governorship ticket in All Progressives Congress APC for the second term, then Seyi Makinde should be prepared to leave office
All the Leaders in the Party will also embrace Adelabu for his coming back as the Candidate of the Party. The Ibadan votes will go in Mass for the All Progressives Congress APC if Adelabu should picked again as the candidate of the Party. Therefore, Adelabu should not relent and should never give up to contest the Governorship Primary Election in the Party.
