#BBCGovDebate :The Political Experience In Oyo State Is Nothing To Be Proud Of- Bayo Adelabu.

The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adebayo Adelabu has debunked the speculation that his lack of political experience would impede his quest for the governorship seat in the state. Moreover, according to him, there is nothing to be proud of in terms of the state’s political experience.
He stated this while participating in the interactive session organized by the BBC for the governorship aspirants in Oyo state. The interactive session held at the Theophilus Ogunlesi hall in UCH, was conducted in Yoruba language had in attendance, candidates of the African Democratic Party Alao Akala, candidate of the African Democratic Congress Femi Lanlehin and Bolanle Sarumi Ganiyu of the NIP and the All Progressives Congress APC Adebayo Adelabu.
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Seyi Makinde was conspicuously absent.
Responding to questions concerning his lack of political experience at any level of government, he stated that the political experience and climate in Nigeria and particularly Oyo state is not something to be proud of. He decried the current climate especially in Oyo state. The political climate is filled with crisis, violence and corruption. He however intends to change the narrative when he gets into power.
He denied that assumption that advanced age is a positive factor in governance. According to him, it is expedient and in line with current global best practices in advanced countries that young persons are given the mantle of leadership. He cited the example of Spain, France and other countries. He lamented that in Nigeria only old people are given the chance to govern which has slowed down the growth rate of the country.
He further asserts that his many years of experience in the private sector especially in leadership positions across different sectors have given him enough experience needed to pilot the affairs of the State.
