Guber candidate in the Oyo elections, Bolaji Ayorinde, has given his reason why he decided to sheave his political sword to queue behind the People’s Democratic Party PDP candidate. In statement released on Monday, March 4, 2019, the resolute crusader stated that the decision was made after much consultation, consideration and consolidation.
In the last few months I have engaged with many stakeholders in the race for the Governorship of Oyo State. This engagement has been tailored towards finding a consensus Candidate amongst willing political parties in view of the configuration of the political divides in our dear State. In doing this , I also offered myself as such consensus candidate but that if the mantle falls on another amongst the coalition I shall have no reason not to support the consensus Candidate.
After many difficult sessions of inter and intra party consultations the mandate has fallen on Engineer Oluseyi MAKINDE of the PDP. I therefore at this point formally declare my support for him going into the March 9th Governorship Election.
Let me note that all the candidates involved in the deliberations are all eminently qualified to provide excellent leadership and I hope they will continue to be involved in the affairs of the State as i intend to do. I thank them immensely for their involvement in the process. I am very great full to the Social Democratic Party from the National ledership to the State, local Government and ward levels. I am extremely great full to my friends and associates who have supported this political journey to this point.
I am indebted to My immediate and extended family for allowing me to go on this journey and for their continued support. In support the candidature of Seyi MAKINDE of the PDP for Governor, I remain committed to all SDP candidates for the House of Assembly elections and urge our people and party faithfulls to go all out to support our candidates.
I wish Seyi MAKINDE and the PDP success . My support is also informed on the need to free our dear State from the shackles of remote control governance and the need to midwife a government that will truly attend to the needs of our people.
God bless you all.
Chief Bolaji Ayorinde ,SAN, OFR
