Crack In Oyo Labour Party As Party Adopts Makinde On Re-election Bid
There is a noticeable crack in the wall of the Oyo state Labour party as the party collapses its political structure to support the reelection bid of the governor of the state.
The Leadership of the party in the state made this known in a press briefing today March 5, 2023, that had in attendance the state working Committee alongside the national and state assembly candidates of the labour party.
In the press briefing build-up, a statement was released by the state governorship candidate of the Labour party, Akinwale, preempting the adoption of Seyi Makinde by the party disowning the party to emphasise his doggedness to remain in the race even without his party’s support.
The State Party chairman, Hon Sodiq Atayese, in his words said, ‘the party arrived at the decision owing to the fact that the ideology of PDP led administration in the state resonates with that of Labour Party, hence, the need to support his re-election of Seyi Makinde ahead of Taofiq Akinwale who is the gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party.
