The immediate past Chief of Staff to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Chief Lukman Oyebisi Ilaka, has declared his intention to contest in the 2023 Oyo Central Senatorial election.

Ilaka made this known on Saturday while speaking on FRESH FFMprogramme titled: ‘Political Circuit’ and anchored by ace broadcast journalist, Mayor Isaac Brown.

Ilaka, who is the Ladilu of Oyo Kingdom, had contested in the 2011 and 22015 election under Accord Party while he contested the 2019 Senatorial election in the Peoples Democratic Party in 2016 and lost to the incumbent Senator Teslim Folarin by six thousand votes.

The PDP chieftain maintained that Teslim Folarin was able to win the contest by virtue of the APC House of Representatives candidates from Ogooluwa/Suurulere Federal Constituency and Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal Constituency that pushed the votes garnered by Folarin up.

Ilaka, however, explained that, in his own case, his votes pushed up the PDP House of Representatives candidates.

Checks revealed that Chief Ilaka is the only party member whose ticket is sure in the party.

He, therefore, urged the PDP to field candidates with electoral values in the next general elections.
