The remaining members of the opposition coalition against the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State are currently finalizing their meeting to work with the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
As at 1pm on Saturday, top opposition leaders and candidates including Sen. Rashidi Ladoja, Olufemi Lanlehin and Sharafadeen Alli were still locked in a meeting to put finishing touches to the alliance with the PDP in the March 9 governorship election.
They are going n with the alliance after the original coalition arrangement collapsed on Friday following the decision of Adebayo Alao-Akala, who was leading the coalitin talks, to switch sides to the APC.
Alao-Akala had hinged his decision on the statement by Ladoja that only an Ibadan indigene can enjoy the support of the larger coalition to face APC’s Adelabu in the election. His son, Olamiju, has since been reinstated as the Chairman, Ogbomoso North Local Goveenment, being part of the terms of the alliance.
