Akala told newsmen in Abuja when he visited the national Secretariat of APC yesterday
The former governor contested the last governorship election in Oyo state on the platform of Labour Party and lost, and later decamped to the ruling APC.
He said: ”
I said that because I pitied the governors because of what they are going through now. I wouldn’t have been able to sleep with these dwindling monthly allocations. That was the reason why I said that. I don’t know how I would have coped. It doesn’t go beyond that.”
On why he visited the Secretariat, Akala said: “I’m at the national headquarters of my party, maybe, you don’t know that I’m in the APC. This is just to tell you that I’m a member of the APC. So, I have come to the national headquarters of my party to have a tete-a-tete with my leaders and the national chairman of the party, including my leaders from the South-West in the party structures. That is what I have come here to do.”
When asked whether he will give another shot to governorship seat 2019, the Ogbomosho born politician said: “When we get to the bridge, we shall cross it. This is just 2016. Time will tell wherever anybody wants to go. Why do you try to ask God about 2019 now? Do you know whether you will sleep tomorrow and wake up tomorrow? Let’s leave 2019 to God.”
