Oyo State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 elections, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party in the state will be defeated in 2023.
Adelabu stated this while speaking with journalists in Ibadan on Thursday.
He also described the performance of the state Governor, Seyi Makinde, as poor and said his administration is yet to deliver their promises.
“My interest in Oyo politics is still very alive. My governorship is alive, undying and will never die. I am happy for not becoming the governor in 2019. That loss has made to get wiser politically and has made me to be more closer to the people at the grassroots and also the political leaders
“Everything this administration promised the people of the state is still on their wish list 16 months after coming on board. With the calibre of people that have returned to the APC, no party can stand on the way of our party.
“Populist programmes are short-lived. Within a short period, people will know that this man doesn’t really have so much to offer in terms of sustainable infrastructural development.
“It is going to two years now, can you point at one or two major projects that this government has completed? Everything is still on their wish list and if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
“As it is today, there is no leadership crisis in the APC in the state. I am part of the reconciliation process, from the meeting held in the house of Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala, to the Abuja meeting and the last one convened by Governor Kayode Fayemi in his Ibadan residence.
