Many political pundits are of the view that the outcome of the poll could affect the chances of the governor and many bigwigs, including former governor Rashidi Ladoja, dumping his camps and endorsing his strongest opponent, Teslim Folarin.

However, Wale Adeagbo, an Ibadan-born legal practitioner, posited that the work of the governor would speak for him in the poll.

What will shape Makinde's fate on Saturday

The legal luminary said:

APC recording a huge vote in Oyo is actually a knock and a sting to Governor Seyi Makinde and PDP to tighten their belts. They should prioritize being in government over personal/individual interests. They should settle their differences.

On the other hand, the people of Oyo have seen and have hugely benefitted from the good governance of Governor Seyi Makinde. The great works that the Governor has put in place will speak for him at the polls.
I strongly believe that the gubernatorial election in Oyo State shall be the popular voice of the people.
