A former governor of Oyo State in western Nigeria, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, on Friday said that he would soon decide on his 2015 ambition.
“I am still consulting. `When you want to make such decisions, you must consult and after that the decision will be made public. I will soon make a decision and everybody will be carried along on what I intend to do,’’ he said.
He spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria in his hometown of Ogbomosho today.
Commenting on the posters announcing his political ambition, he said they emanated from his followers who still have confidence in his leadership.
“The people who are interested in me are the ones behind the posters. They are the ones telling the world that they believe in my leadership and still wants me,’’ he said.
He said that the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State was united, adding that individual interest could override that of the party.
Alao-Akala, still facing graft charges in court, said that the party in the state would soon get it right and make its plans known to the people.
“When the chips are down and the time comes, we will separate the men from the boys or the boys from the men,’’ he said.
