Former Oyo State Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala has denied any attempt to sack the Akeem Yinka Taiwo-led State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Executive Council.
His reaction followed the allegations linking him to a petition seeking the dissolution of the executives who he accused of not living up to expectation.
The former governor was accused of being too critical of the Yinka Taiwo-led exco and was working to ensure its dissolution.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Abraham Ojo, Alao-Akala said yesterday that at no time did he make either covert or overt efforts to take over the party exco.
He noted that the claim by the Vice Chairman, Solomon Ogunjimi, was ridiculous and absurd.
A party chieftain, Adebisi Olopoenia, has described the reports as cheap blackmail.
Olopoenia said it was an attempt by some desperate governorship aspirants to misinform the public to create hatred for the former governor.
“There was never any attempt by Alao-Akala to dissolve Oyo PDP exco. This is the handiwork of his political enemies and they will not succeed.
“It is not possible to dissolve our party exco at this crucial hour and Ogunjimi, who is leading this allegation, has no place in Oyo politics.”
