The African Peoples Alliance (APA), Oyo State Chapter, has said that the defeat handed the State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, during last Saturday’s National Assembly elections was a collective responsibility and not the handiwork of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and her members in the Oyo South Senatorial District alone.

This was contained in a press release made available to newsmen in Ibadan by Oyo APA governorship candidate, Deacon Tolulope Adedoyin.

According to the release, “(Seye) Makinde or members of Oyo PDP shouldn’t take the glory for themselves. God, Atiku, people of the senatorial district and some opposition parties like us should be given the glory. It is on record that when Makinde was in SDP, he didn’t win any Assembly Seat or House of Rep. Dr. Muhammed Kola Balogun couldn’t defeat Senator Abiola Ajimobi if Atiku was not running under PDP.

“Dr. Muhammed Kola Balogun didn’t campaign or spend much compared to Senator Ridwan Adesoji and Senator Abiola Ajimobi. It was grace he received from God. The same grace Senator Ridwan received from God in 2015. Right from day one that Senator Abiola Ajimobi expressed his interest in contesting for the senatorial election, APA was the first party to protest against such interest. We in APA still believed Makinde is not yet ripe for governance in the state.

“The election of Atiku has gone. Now it’s governorship and house of assembly. Makinde shouldn’t expect what happened in NASS elections to happen in the governorship election. Oyo state needs an experienced and well qualified candidate.”

APA urged the people of Oyo State to stay calm, study different governorship candidates with their programmes as governorship campaign resumes and vote according to their conscience.
