Oni, on the other hand, hasn’t revealed which group he’ll be camping with.
However, rumors abound that the ex-governor will join the All Progressives Grand Alliance (AGPA) to run for governor.
Oni, who lost the PDP Governorship Primary election to Bisi Kolawole, was said to have approached APGA for a chance to run for governor using their platform.
Following some exploratory meetings between Oni’s associates and APGA leadership, a deal was reportedly struck to admit the ex-governor to the party’s fold and then grant him a waiver to allow him to fly the party’s flag.
On Tuesday, Oni’s associates were led to a meeting with APGA’s national leadership by APGA’s Vice Chairman (South West), Samson Seun Olalere.
The meeting was held behind closed doors, with Chief Victor Ike Oye, the APGA’s national chairman, and Mr. Labaran Maku, the party’s national secretary and former Minister of Information, in attendance.
According to a source familiar with the meeting’s discussions, the team came to APGA at the request of the ex-governor, who has finalized plans to dump the PDP for APGA.
