Oyo 2019: Akintola deserves total support, says Alaafin
Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi, has appealed to the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), at both state and national levels to ensure that the governorship ambition of Chief Adeniyi Akintola, (SAN) receives their blessings.
Oba Adeyemi made the remark at the weekend when the legal luminary paid a courtesy visit to the palace.
The monarch, who described Akintola as a formidable pillar in legal practice, recalled that the aspirant had applied legal prowess to save situations for the progressives on many occasions, especially in the south west.
Oba Adeyemi noted that the likes of Akintola, whom he further described as knowledgeable and God-fearing should always vie for and seize the reins of leadership across tiers of government.
Earlier, in his remarks, the aspirant pleaded for the support of the monarch whom he referred to as a father. He said his interest in the governorship race was informed by the need to sustain the enviable legacies of the incumbent governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
