The aspirant, who paid the mandatory N3 million fees, collected the form at the party secretariat in Ibadan through Razak Gbadegesin his former Chief of Staff.
Speaking after the collection of the form, Gbadegesin and Alao-Akala’s committee of friends said, “We are here to collect the form on his behalf and it is due to the fact that we believe in his ability to deliver when he becomes governor of Oyo State.”
