No Regrets Leaving PDP, Says Alao-Akala

Former Oyo State Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala has said he has no regrets leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Labour Party (LP).
He spoke shortly after starting his campaign at eight markets in Ibadan-Gbagi, Aleshinloye, Oke-Padre, Amunigun, Oranyan, Gate-Araromi, Bodija and Ogunpa.
Alao-Akala said he had no regrets leaving PDP, stating that God and the masses are for him and they will surely give him the necessary support to win his governorship ambition.
The former governor said the PDP discriminated against him and some other aspirants, but God was in support of his ambition.
Addressing the traders, he promised to reduce shop rates.
The LP governorship candidate described the campaign as a house-to-house visit, which started with a “friendly campaign” to traders.
“I decided to begin the visit with the traders, as you will agree with me that traders play major roles in the society,” he said.

One of Alao-Akala’s kinsman, Adebisi Olopoenia, said yesterday that he is still a member of the PDP.
He said:“LP is not my party and I didn’t know anybody in that party and I don’t have any rapport with them.
“I cannot leave PDP because it’s the party to beat in this coming election.
“Akala didn’t inform me of his defection and I believe he cannot even call me to follow him.”
