Here Is Why APC Will Never Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Just Because Of Ajimobi
Try and meet anybody on the streets of Oyo state and ask who their next governor is, the simple brief answer they will give you is "Seyi Makinde". Many card carrying members of the APC party in Oyo state will also give you similar answer due to facts as explored in this writeup.
It is no longer a new fact that the present outgoing Governor of Oyo State, Senator Isaac Abiola Ajimobi, has stepped on many toes, he is megalomanaic and has lifted himself to the status of a deity. He lacks Iwa Omoluabi, sympathy, and has insulted the intelligence of both young and adult citizens of Oyo state who elected him for the governorship mandate. This may be a minor issue anyway among several reasons why peope of Oyo state will not vote the APC candidate.
The recent intervention by Tinubu and the weakling action exibited by a former governor and gubernatorial candidate of ADP, Alao Akala are just actions and despiration which will end in futility if the mandate of the people is allowed.
1. Mr. Tinubu is the pro chancellor and chairman of governing council of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Lautech, and the both state governors whose Lautech is in their charge are member of APC party where Asiwaju Tinubu is their party leader. We expect him to use his influence to bring about a change but as much as I know, he never for once show any care to call the two governors and liase with them about how an end can come to the incessant strike in the institution.
A Yoruba adage stated: Agba kii wa l'oja ki ori omo tuntun o wo, but I dont think this context can be apply to Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu with what has happened in the history of Lautech. However in contrast and for whatever reason it maybe, whether political or eleemosynary, Seyi Makinde was the greatest donor of the #SaveLautech donation.
2. With the many wealth of Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu of Lagos state and years of his been the Chacellor of the University, Lautech, I have not notice a single structure in the school in his name built by him; not even a classroom. I remember I saw him fly and landed one of his Helicopters in the school premises but what has this got to do with the thousands of students whose destinies were put on hold, and the insult by the "constituted authority" who instead of putting soothing balm on the wounds of the irate students, decide to treat them like nonentity.
Now Asiwaju Tinubu is coming around to act like a god and a savior of Oyo state.
3. The Mr. Adebayo Adelabu, the Oyo APC gubernatorial candidate has tried to divide the good people of Oyo state along the religion line (using the divide and conquer trick). His religous instigating comments about Seyi Makinde showed how distant he has been from the people of Oyo state over the time.
Residents of Oyo state are educated and mature beyond the shackles of religion, we are elites and cannot be limited by religion. Every extended family in Oyo state is a mixture of people of both religion.
That statement of his with intention to cause division using religion shows that he is not better than the present outgoing Governor. An elder state man and a true leader will never and ever cause division amoung his people. If Adebayo is given the chance, he will turn the back of many people and create more division in the Oyo state to achieve his any goal and the will of his god fathers.
4. Mr. Tinubu cannot extend his god fatherism and hegemony to Ibadan and Oyo state at large as we all know the result of his political dominance in the Lagos state. We need no governor who will exalt the will of his god fathers (about three of them) over the will of the people who voted him into office.
Even, many of the card carrying APC member will not vote Adedubu as they still regret the fact that Mr Tinubu of Lagos state in conjuction with Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state brought Adebayo Adelabu and lord him over the APC party in Oyo state disregarding the rights to have a say of other party member who have been loyal to the party and have working for it in the past eight years.
Note:* I'm not politician, I dont belong to any political party and have never meet or have any thing to do with Seyi Makinde. These are my observations over the time and considering the recent happenings in my state, Oyo State.

That's normal anyway. but I'm in support of no party. APC = PDP
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by vonxe: 3:06pm On Mar 04|
I believe ogbomoso is the difference between APC and PDP in Oyo state.
The card Tinubu is playing will have effect in a way but whether the effect will be enough is another thinking.
All in all looking at the profile of both candidates I will vote for adelabu over makinde.
But the masses determines the votes not the elites or educated.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by sagitariusbaby(m): 3:17pm On Mar 04|
I'm very certain that the people of Oyo hate the master/slave relationship so typical of Tinubu. Even elected governors with all their rights act as slaves to Tinubu, they rather please him than please the people who elected them. Makinde is the man of the people, Oyo people should make no mistake by not voting him come March 9th. Oyo must work again and that can only happen when you give Makinde an overwhelming majority vote.

Samleen:wow what a good write-up. keep it up.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by lizzybet(f): 3:31pm On Mar 04|
the writeup contradicts the headline
Oyo People aren't voting APC simply because of Ajimobi.....PERIOD
Lautech this,Tinubu that are just mere political saboteurs.
Ajimobi is a bastard son of ibadan land.
He has done several bad things that outweigh his good deeds.
No government since I've been born has done more infrastructural development in oyo state than Ajimobi
Borno people can tell what security of lifes and properties means
I passed through iwo road everyday to and fro from school, there's no single day you wouldn't meet at least a corpse at Abe bridge, Ajimobi's government cleared the whole place and planted flowers.
Also this same Abe bridge, it's den for ritualists and touts, Ajimobi imprisoned the tout leader and brought Operation Burst. You can pass through the place at anytime now.
But, Ajimobi has bad mouth, he has too much pride, he sees himself as all in all.
He has no regard for anyone.
People believes that even he feeds the whole state, he should at least has some Omoluabi in him. He's not a good leader

People of ogbomoso are already grieved with the removal of (Junior) Alao Akala from his elected post by the APC party (althught was restored back due to action of his father).
Many Ogbomoso resident sees Alao Akala's recent moves as that of a traitor. Alao Akala ruin the hope of upcoming people from Ogbomoso with intention to rule Oyo state with the reason he gave for cancelling his gubernatorial ambition. Many will not forgive him.
Was Alao Akala not an Ogbomoso indigene when he was massively voted for to become the Oyo governor?

Personally I like makinde, his a nice man but I doubt is ability to manage oyo state better than Adelabu.
Adelabu will do better in term of infrastructure development and revenue generation but there will be less money sharing in his government while makinde will be a big donor to many people that will be need of cash in his government but infrastructure will be less.
This are the main different between APC and PDP government. We should choose what we want among the two.

@OP, Tinubu fanboys will soon invade this thread to insult and call you names.
Don't be surprised if they tag you IPOB like they often call me cos i am not a fan of APC.
They've been spamming my mentions with insults since i kicked against the misguided youths who called for Tinubu's interference in my state (ondo) politics but i wont dignify such idiots with any response.
My advice to Tinubu slaves: Continue in your in your servitude but allow others decide who leads them in their own domains.

You are not being neutral despite claiming you neither support PDP nor APC, you want PDP to win which is understandable from what you just wrote.
The reality on ground is that, a state with the largest percentage of national assembly members in APC will likely get a governor from APC.
Ogbomoso is the deciding factor if Akala can do like omisore then the gubernatorial elections belong to APC else PDP takes the mantle.
I repeat the game being played by APC, although coming late, will have effect on the election.
Without mincing words, I want Adelabu to win cos he is more qualified than Seyi Makinde.
Note. I dont and will never support a self imposing emperor in southwest

Is voting for vendetta, voting sake or for development? Compare pdp governed period in southwest and the APC era, specifically ajimobi's era in Oyo state.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by backnbeta(f): 4:56pm On Mar 04|
Adelabu is worse than Ajimobi, that's a known fact. In a free and fair election, with or without Akala, he can't win.
Too bad, he will win through massive rigging. Tinubu doesn't care about what the people want, it's what he wants that's important.

At the end of everything, it is still Tinubu's name. Don't give yourself heartattack because of this man.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by Nobody: 5:44pm On Mar 04|
This thread is not about which party is the best.
Nigerians should wise up as it is evident that all party are same in Nigeria... there is no political ideology to differentiate them.
They are same people in these political party... APC = PDP
They move from one party to another as it pleases them but you don't have anywhere to go when they spoil our heritage and refuse to bringg tangible development to the people.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by helinues: 5:54pm On Mar 04|
All the best to both Seyi and Adelabu
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by Nobody: 5:57pm On Mar 04|
If you ask me, I want Seyi Makinde to win whether he is in PDP or he is in APC. He has shown himself an omoluabi even in the face of defeat. I pray he will not be drunk in power, because the same way is how Abiola Ajimobi was an Omoluabi until he became power drunk and start playing the role of a god.
Seyi may not be the best candidate overall. I have read Adelabu's profile too and I kind of like it, he is smart but considering his political background, the kind of people arround him, his prides, his recent divisive comment and my encounter with choice of many people of Oyo state I've been previlege to interview, I need to make my choice known.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by sunsewa16: 6:00pm On Mar 04|
Tinubu will rather drink his blood and eat his poo to ensure PDP don't win in Oyo and Lagos States, abradacabra shambles election will be employed.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by luvmijeje(f): 6:06pm On Mar 04|
I love and appreciate the contribution of Tinubu to the politics of the West and Nigeria. But there are times we the citizens need to keep him and his parties on his toes. Don't let us make them too comfortable. Imagine the way Tinubu was begging the people of Oyo. It could have been Lagos
PDP needs to replace Bode George. When it comes to foresight, he lacks it.

|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by Nobody: 7:00pm On Mar 04|
One funny development is that even if Seyi Makinde decides to move from PDP to APC party tomorrow morning, he will still get majority of Oyo's vote.
The presence of Ajimobi and Tinubu in the APC party although will reduce the number of votes Seyi will garner but at the end he will still win.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by yesloaded: 7:14pm On Mar 04|
Is this a joke or word out of ignorance? In terms of academic qualification, Seyi has it than Adelabu. In terms of exposure, experience about management, service to humanity etc Seyi has done it better than Adelabu. What are you saying? Seyi has been managing his private business even when Bayo was still in school.

I learnt Seyi Makinde is a former student at MIT (one of world's 10 best intitution), he is also a Billionaire.

Worst than ajimobi...
Someone that has never tasted power before...let alone been in the corridor of power

Samleen:You lie sir.seyi is mostly popular around ibadan and will win 8 out of the 11 ibadan lgas.adelabu will take ibarapa,oyo,ogbomoso and oke ogun.the worst that will happen is that the guber contest will end in a moonslide like the presidential poll in oyo where atiku won with a thousand vote.the election will then go into supplementaries where makinde will lose.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by Nobody: 8:14pm On Mar 04|
You are also correct, who am I to say no!
All my posts and comments here like as previously said are based on my observations. I don't know how many electorates you've handpcked and interview on the streets of Ibarapa, oyo, Ogbomoso and Oke ogun so I can't say much abut your conclusions.
Neither Seyi Makinde nor Adelabu Adebayo is from any of these region you made mention and I believe people from these region were also in Oyo state with us over the past eight years of Governor Abiola Ajimobi and that they have their individual mind of their own.
My and your opinion are just suggestions. We will know the mandate of the electorates after the upcoming saturday ballot.
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by vonxe: 8:39pm On Mar 04|
I like the way answered me, you focused on the substance.
Both schooled home and abroad
Both have immense international exposure
One is a trained accountant and the other is a trained Engineer.
The difference is :
Adelabu was the Executive Director/Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Nigeria's largest bank, First Bank of Nigeria Plc. (FBN) at the age of 39.
Adebayo was the Deputy Governor, Operations of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Adelabu served as the Chairman, Board of Directors of the Nigeria InterBank Settlement Systems (NIBBS) and has chaired the board of Financial Institution Training Centre (FITC). He is also a serving member of the Board of Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS), Nigeria Security Printing and Minting Company (NSPMC), the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) and the Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk-Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL).
Adelabu is also a businessman, He is the Group Chairman of Bayse One Group of Hotels, the Best Western Plus Hotels, Ibadan and Bayse One Farm
Seyo Makinde portfolio only shows he was the Engineering manager of IOC's and He is now the Group Managing Director of Makon Group of Companies, which is just an indigenous company
One understand Nigerian system better and was in position to make decisions that might affect the Nigeria economy
All in all, Nigeria political atmosphere is complex
|Re: Here Is Why APC Will Not Win Oyo Gubernatorial Election; Not Even For Ajimobi by Bimpe29: 8:44pm On Mar 04|
APC is as desperate as PDP, but Ajimobi's actions and inactions over the years would surely affect the fortune of APC in the March 9, 2019 gubernatorial election in Oyo.
