Former Governor of Oyo State and Chairman, Elders Advisory council of the All Progressives Congress, Oyo State, Otunba  Adebayo Alao-Akala, has stated that the opposition party in the state will take over the rein of power in 2023.
He described the ongoing registration and re-validation of membership exercise of the party as impressive, with the huge turnout witnessed within the first two days of commencement of the exercise.
 Alao-Akala made this assertion shortly after revalidating his membership of the party at his Sabo/Taara ward 10, Olukotun compound Polling Unit in Ogbomoso North Local Government Area of Oyo State with his wife, Oluwakemi Alao-Akala and other family members.
 Addressing party faithfuls who gathered at the registration centre, Akala said,” your unprecedented turnout for this membership registration and re-validation exercise tells a lot about your readiness and willingness to stand with the party come rain, come shine.
“You have willingly come out to identify with the APC without any form of inducement or coercion, which is a pointer to the fact that our great party is acceptable across all divides.
“Let me now shock you, all  things being equal and without mincing words, APC will be in power in Oyo State before 2023. And come 2023, we will still be in power God willing. I won’t go into details more than this but I tell you, we are putting finishing touches that will result into that reality.
“In the next couple of days, you will see new faces and new movements amongst us, welcome them with open hands, make them comfortable, it is part of the process. Don’t fight anybody, let the process go on smoothly, don’t feel intimidated by their coming. Let us gladly receive them into the APC fold,” he declared.
He noted that ” since the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state does not appreciate being in power, we will take it away from them. You know we operate an all encompassing and open door policy. The best thing for us as a state is to make sure Oyo State is also and APC state and this will soon become a reality.”
