By Abiodun Ogunrinde, Ibadan

The gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Congress, ADC, and a key member in the coalition agreement that produced Governor Seyi Makinde in the 2019 general elections, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin has pulled out of the coalition agreement on Tuesday.

According to a statement obtained by CityMirrorNews which was signed by Lanlehin Media Bureau, Lanlehin accused Makinde of non compliance with the agreement terms.

Read the full statement below:


Senator Olufemi Lanlehin (Solan), Oyo State Leader of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) hereby announces forthwith, his personal withdrawal from the coalition he has with Engr. Seyi Makinde, the Oyo State governor;

Recall that Senator Lanlehin, former Oyo State gubernatorial candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) joined forces with other opposition parties’ governorship candidates to back Makinde, and the gubernatorial victory was thereupon resounding;

Lanlehin, who hinged his decision to quit the coalition on what he termed Governor Makinde’s non compliance with the spirit and letters of the terms of the gubernatorial pre-election agreement reached, however maintains that his party, the ADC is at liberty to remain in the coalition, and believes it should, in fact, remain;
Lanlehin, going forward, states that while he remains a committed member of the ADC, he would adopt a “siddon look” posture in the governance of Oyo State and allied matters;
Thank you.
