Governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Adebayo Alao-Akala has formed an alliance with the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adebayo Adelabu ahead of the March 9 election, Premium Times reports.
While announcing the alliance, Alao-Akala said he will no longer contest for governorship under the ADP.
Alao-Akala was former Oyo State governor before losing his reelection bid to Abiola Ajimobi.
He, however, insisted that candidates of the ADP for the state House of Assembly election will still have his support.
Alao-Akala and Adelabu are two of the five leading governorship candidates for next Saturday’s governorship and state assembly elections in Oyo.
