Former Secretary to Oyo state government and governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Partly (PDP), Barrister Sarafadeen Abiodun Alli has declared that the people of Oyo state deserved better than what they are getting from the present government under the leadership of Governor Abiola Ajimobi and his All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration.
Alli while speaking in Ibadan, the state capital at a live radio programme on Fresh FM, Ibadan, tagged, “Political Circuit” at the weekend noted that “With all the promises made by Ajimobi and APC, I think people of Oyo state deserved better than what they are getting from the present government in Oyo state. People of Oyo state deserved more than what they are getting from this government going by the campaign promises during the 2015 elections”.
The former Chairman, Odu’a Investment Company Limited, while speaking further also scored the Ajimobi administration low in the areas of education, health, industrial revolution, access roads, adding that quite a lot of projects are still left undone across the five geopolitical zones of the State. He, however, informed that people of the state are seriously awaiting for the return of PDP in 2019 because of the failure of the ruling APC to deliver on promises made in 2015
The former Oyo SSG who was a running mate to Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala in the 2015 general election under Labour Party also dispelled the rumour that he stepped down for the former Governor after millions of naira had allegedly exchanged hands between them for him to forgo his LP Gubernatorial ticket adding that, “people most times react to things on perception.
Alli said, “Otunba Alao-Akala is alive and you journalists can go and ask him if I collect a dime from him. The party elders and a number of other aspirants in the party felt all of us should allow him to fly the LP ticket because of his political standing. How much could he have offered me in 2015 because I was richer then than now? I swear by Almighty Allah that I didn’t collect any money from him and all the promises he made to the party were not even fulfilled after he secured our ticket. It was an experience that many of them are still regretting till today”.
