One of the ex-Governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, said on

Thursday that it is uncharitable for Governor Seyi Makinde to refer to

him and other past governors in the state as “charlatans”.

Alao-Alaka, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this

in Iseyin on Thursday while speaking with journalists at the

empowerment programme organised by the Senator representing Oyo

North Senatorial District, Fatai Buhari.

Makinde, while reacting to the threat to vote him out of office in 2023

said his disparagers lacked political relevance and the state would never

again be governed by charlatans.

Makinde said, “Let me sound this: if I will not seek re-election, I am sure

that Oyo State will never, again, be in the hands of charlatans.
So, calm down. It is even too early to start talking about a second term.

Some parties that do not have even one councilor are saying that they

will send me out of the Government House in 2023.”

The journalists asked Alao Akala his reaction to what Makinde said in

Ogbomoso on Wednesday, Akala said, it was immature for the governor

to have said what was credited to him.

Alao-Akala said, “I don’t believe he (Makinde) said that. But if he said

that, he made a mistake, you don’t address your predecessors as

charlatans”.

”You don’t do that, it is unstatesmanly and uncharitable. You just have to

talk like a statesman that he is going to be a statement after he must

have left office”.

“You would seen the way we have been addressing him. None of us who

has been in that office before has ever said that he is not doing very well”.

“He is doing his best. The best may not be enough for the people. When it

is time for the campaign, we will campaign. But don’t use that word

‘charlatan’ it was unstatesmanly for him to have said that.”
