Former Governor of Oyo state Otunba Christopher Alao- Akala has attacked Governors under the platform of the APC. He said the Governors govern their states on the pages of newspaper. Akala who is running for Governor in 2015 said this during an interview with The Vanguard.
According to him his return into the guber race was at the request of the people of the state.” it is one thing to scratch somebody’s back, it is another thing to scratch the body where it is itching him”.
On APC Governments, he said “what is certain is that the opposition party is more pronounced on the pages of newspapers than doing the real work of governance. The APC governs on the front pages of newspapers. They are propagandists. They like propaganda. They talk more than they work and people have realized that now.
You know we people in Oyo State are quite exposed, because we are highly educated and so, because of that, it is now even more difficult, unlike before, to throw any garbage at them and they accept it. The people are wiser now. They won’t vote for just anybody again and it is obvious now that if it was PDP, the party would have made a lot of difference in their lives.
When he was asked if Governor Ajimobi had not done anything to improve Oyo state, he said that he wouldn’t say so but that the incumbent cannot be compared to his own administration.
“Well, you have not got enough time to compare, because if you know our environment very well, then you know what I am saying. I am not saying the man has not done anything but, compared to what people like us have done, he has not done anything.”
