2015 and emerging alliance in Oyo
DARE ADEKANMBI, in this piece, looks at how the happenings in the three major political parties in Oyo State- the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party and the Accord Party-are likely to determine the colour of the political sky in 2015.
The battle for the control of Oyo State in the 2015 election is not going to be a tea party among the three major political parties in the state namely, the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Accord Party (AP). In the last election, there was a solid alliance that threw spanner in the works for the re-election of former Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala. His major ‘enemies’ were from within his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and these people teamed up with the ACN to win the state with a narrow vote margin.
