At least, 60 political parties have adopted the Ogun APM governorship candidate, Adekunle Akinlade, as their candidate for the 2019 election in the state. Among the political parties are Labour Party, APGA, KOWA, Green Party, Accord, YES and others. Leaders of the political parties declared their supports for Akinlade today during the official flag off of his campaign at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Kuto Abeokuta. The flag off, according to observers, was the first of its kind in the history of Ogun State, considering the massive turn out it recorded. The event was more or less a carnival as hordes of crowd thronged the ancient city of Abeokuta in their thousands to declare their supports for the Ipokia-born politician. Celebrities like Shefiu Alao, Small Doctor, 9ice, Oritsefemi, Q. Dot, Gbenga Adeyinka (The First), Musiliu Haruna Ishola, K.Flex and others were at the rock city to entertain the crowd. Traditional rulers, students, transporters, traders and other well-meaning individuals from all walks of life were at the occasion to identify with Akinlade. 57 new buses were distributed to campaign committees in each of the 20 local governments and the 37 LCDAs. Leaders of the party handed the party flags to Akinlade and other candidates of the party as they launched the 2019 election campaign.
