The governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress in Oyo State, Olufemi Lanlehin, has withdrawn from the coalition that helped Seyi Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party to victory at the election in March.
Lanlehin announced his withdrawal in a statement to journalists today in Ibadan, the state capital.
It was gathered that the politicians had reached an agreement on how the various positions and appointments will be shared in the event of Makinde’s election.
Other prominent politicians who worked for Makinde and were part of the agreement were a former Governor of the state, Rashidi Ladoja and Monsurat Sunmonu.
But, Lanlehin today said he has pulled out of the coalition agreement.
Lanlehin said he was leaving the coalition because Makinde has deviated from the terms of the agreement.
The former senator who represented Oyo South however, said his party, ADC is at liberty to remain in the coalition.
Lanlehin was one of the major political actors who worked with Makinde to defeat the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Adebayo Adelabu in the 9th March election.
