The camp of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo state seems not settled over what some stakeholders perceived as unfavourable body language of the President elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu towards the party gubernatorial candidate, Senator Teslim Kolawole Folarin.
Folarin of the APC will be slugging it out with Governor Seyi Makinde of PDP, Chief Adebayo Adelabu of Accord and others on Saturday.
At the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly Election, the APC won 3 Senators and 8 House of Reps seats.
An Inside source said that the leaders of the APC in the state are not happy with what they called ‘double standard’ and ‘unfavourable disposition’ from Tinubu’s end to the party gubernatorial candidate.
“We have three senators and reps but that may not translate to victory for us during the gubernatorial election, Tinubu need to support us, and talk to people.” the source said.
The source who doesn’t want his name in print said further: “We are quite aware that the President elect’s body language is not in favour of party candidate and some of the core Tinubu’s loyalist are not on the same page with Senator Folarin.
“Some are pretending to be but deep down them, they are either working for Seyi Makinde or Bayo Adelabu.”
Tinubu had during the campaign tour of the state visited Governor Makinde and described him as a diligent person who has worked brilliantly in the state.
Another party stalwart said that the logistics for the election is yet to get to Ibadan adding it may not be given directly to the guber candidate and his team.
