Alaafin’s Sons Secure APC, PDP Reps Ticket by Ibrahim9090: 11:56am On Oct 05, 2018
In what appears to be sibling rivalry, two sons of the highly revered traditional ruler in Oyo stats, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi 11, the Alaafin of Oyo have secured the tickets of their respective parties to contest the Oyo federal constituency seat in the 2019 House of Representatives’ election.
They were both eyeing Afijio/Oyo East/ Oyo West federal constituency seat
Prince Akeem popularly known as Skimeh who is a serving member of the National Assembly is being challenged by his Bayo Adeyemi D-Gov.
While Akeem is the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, his brother D.Gov will fly the flag of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in 2019 for the same seat
Both have been politically active for more than a decade. While Skimeh, as Akeem is popularly known, became chairman of Atiba local government in 2007, when he was barely 31, D-Guv, as Bayo is popularly called was secretary of Oyo West local government in 2003, when he was 26.
Skimeh and D-Gov were born on December 8 and 9, 1977 respectively.

This is utter rubbish!!! Is this some form of dynasty or what?? So being the children of the traditional ruler now makes them better than other indigenes in the state?? Little wonder why one old man will be playing with their destiny in Lagos.
I thank God for the liberal nature of the Igbo society, such nonsense can't happen in Igboland!!

It's not about liberal nature of Igbo society it's desperation from your party PDP.

The current occupant of the seat is Prince Akeem one of the traditional ruler's sons an APC member.

Why did your party PDP give his another son Bayo a ticket? One word desperation!

Remember PDP did same thing in Kastina senatorial by-election the moment APC gave it's ticket to the senior one already in the house of representative, PDP went ahead to give the younger one that is not a politician. One word desperation again!

This is indicative of the weakness of the people! Abi na only dem waka come?

Democracy presents an opportunity for those who rule to be challenged. Anyone who no like am should either vote for a party the Alaafin has not put in his pocket or challenge them at the primaries and elections instead of making out one is helpless to effect change!

I agree that in Igboland, where almost everyone seems to be 'Alaafin', this probably cannot happen, though claiming there are no dynasties in Igboland is somewhat naive.

It's becoming clearer that yorubas pose a huge problem to this country. They can never learn from the past, so much for their supposed sophistication. Tufiakwa
