Bayo Adelabu, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress
(APC) in Oyo State, has been lambasting some of the party chieftains in the state, censuring them for his misfortune in the election.
According to SR, Dayo Iyaniwura, one of Adelabu’s main allies who is also a Personal Assistant to outgoing Governor Abiola Ajimobi, was caught in one of his many fits of rage at Ajimobi’s Oluyole residence on Sunday.
Two sources who witnessed the episode confirmed to Sahara Reporters that Adelabu had attacked the Governor’s PA during an argument, which resulted into an outbreak of fisticuffs between them.
One of the sources told SR that Adelabu rained unprintable and abusive words on Tegbe, who later showed up at Ajimobi’s residence as well. He specifically accused Tegbe of not supporting him, claiming Tegbe’s team worked against him during the campaign and that was why he lost.
SR understands that Adelabu did not reconcile with the candidates who were forced to step down for him at last year’s APC governorship primary, insisting that he had all it takes to win the election.
But he lost Saturday’s election to Seyi Makinde of the PDP, winning only five of the 33 local governments in the state while Makinde won all the rest, with a total of 515,621 votes.
