The Federal Honourable representing Afijio/Oyo East/Oyo West/ Atiba local government constituency Hon. Akeem Adeniyi Adeyemi, the crowned prince of Oyo Town has also publicly declared his support for the governorship candidature of the Agbaakin Parakoyi of Ibadanland Adebayo Abdul-Waheed Adelabu.
Speaking at the official press conference of Adebayo Adelabu governorship declaration, Hon Akeem Adeyemi expressed his profound joy at witnessing such as historic event which in his words: will bring forth many successes and transformation to our dear state, Oyo.
He emphasized strongly on the high pedigree on standards of our past leaders in the calibre of late Chief Bola Ige, late Lam Adeshina and present Governor Abiola Ajimobi who all have rich family history on their side and how Chief Bayo Adelabu will achieve similar greatness and even propagate the Adegoke Adelabu legacy to a higher level.
In the same tone, he delivered the greetings and political support of the High King, The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III. He relayed the King's solemn support for Bayo Adelabu's ambition and further shed more lights on the relationship between his grandfather King Adeniran Adeyemi II, the then Alaafin of Oyo and Honourable Adegoke Adelabu Penkelemesi and how they, the descendants, have all been committed to fostering a better relationship due to their connected bloodlines.
In his closing remark, Honorable Akeem Adeyemi thanked Bayo Adelabu, a governorship aspirant under the platform of the ruling party APC, for keeping a good name of the Adelabu family while in office bearing in mind President Mohammadu Buhari's complete disregard for corruption. A good name is more precious than Gold. He promised to stand by Adelabu 2019 project completely and observe all sort of mobilization in his own little capacity.
