The governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde has picked the chairman of Housing Corporation, Barrister Bayo Lawal as his running mate for 2023 general elections.
According to reports, Bayo Lawal’s choice was preferred ahead two others who were widely rumored.
With this development, the incumbent deputy governor of the state, Rauf Olaniyan will longer be in office after 2023, if Makinde eventually got reelected as governor.
The reason why Rauf Olaniyan was dropped is not known as of press time, but it is not unconnected with the cold war between the duo since second year their administration.
The favoured Bayo Lawal is said to hail from Kishi, a town at Irepo local government area of the state. He was a former Attorney General of Oyo state in 1999 under the administration of former governor, late Lam Adesina.
He is currently the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Housing Corporation.
