A former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Kamil Akinlabi, has said that Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has compensated all gubernatorial candidates who stepped down for him in 2019.
DAILY POST recalls that gubernatorial candidates of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Chief Olufemi Lanlehin, Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) Barrister Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli, and Social Democratic Party (SDP), Chief Bolaji Ayorinde, jettisoned their ambitions to support Makinde in 2019.
DAILY POST gathered that the coalition was facilitated by former Governor of the State, Senator Rasidi Adewolu Ladoja a few days to the gubernatorial election.

But the gubernatorial candidates among whom are Lanlehin and Alli have accused the governor of abandoning them.
They alleged that the governor is not working in line with the coalition agreement.
Lanlehin and Alli specifically alleged that Makinde has sidelined them.
Akinlabi has however said that all the candidates who stepped down for Makinde have been duly compensated.
He noted that contrary to Lanlehin and Alli’s claims, all the candidates have been compensated one way or the other.
