Prince Akeem Adeyemi, son of Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, has revealed how he felt when the All Progressives u6Congress, APC, lost the 2019 governorship election to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
It would be recalled that the APC failed to retain Oyo after Abiola Ajimobi governed the state for 8 years. APC’s Bayo Adelabu had lost the March 9, 2019 election to PDP’s Seyi Makinde.
The young prince, who is two-term member of the House of Representatives, spoke in an interview with Nigerian Tribune.
According to him, “It’s a known fact that without the collaboration and gang-up of other parties, there is no way any other party can defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State. The indices are clear. A party that went into a national election and came out with nine House of Representatives’ members and two senators remain a dominant party. But during the governorship election, the other parties teamed up. This is not to say that there were no steps taken by the APC that was against the people’s wish. “But reconciliation is ongoing to reposition the party to overcome our electoral challenges. I want to assure you that our party is on ground and we will show the people the stuff we are made of and in future elections, we will make a comeback. The party you are celebrating today was kicked out before,” he added.
