Former governor of Oyo State, Otunba Alao Akala, has revealed what he feels is the reason behind the demolition of Yinka Ayefele’s music house.The building which also housed Fresh FM was demolished by the Oyo state government.
According to Akala, this was due to an absence in communication between operators of the media outfit and officials of the Oyo State Government.
The former governor was speaking as he returned his nomination forms at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja
When asked by journalists about his take on the affair, Akala said: “I think the demolition of the radio station, was just due to a communication gap between the government and the owner of the radio station.
“And I want to tell you that; that has been resolved. I want to put it on record and I am not lying, I will tell you the truth. I own a radio station (Parrot FM, Ibadan) in Oyo State too. A similar letter was written to the radio station and it was submitted to me.”
Akala added: “When I saw it, I said look, go to the local level — I am talking about the management of the radio station and settle your issue. I think it was just a lack of communication and that has been resolved.”
As for his political ambitions, Akala said he’s coming back because that’s what the people want and that he would improve on the achievements of Governor Ajimobi.
“I came back because people want me to come back and I came back also because I want our party to win Oyo State. I don’t want Oyo State to go to any other party and I had said it when I was declaring my ambition that it is because we don’t want to toy with our chances at all,” he said.
