He is a former Senate Leader but in Oyo state, he is one of the underdogs for this weekend’s governorship elections in the state – even though he is running on the platform of the PDP.
Teslim Folarin no doubt is very eloquent. He is fluent and very smart – too smart for some people as evident in the Splash FM’s governorship debate. But the words of the street about him do not favor him as a gubernatorial aspirant.
He admitted he has not done anything for the University of Ibadan, not even the street he lives on….
Against Saturday, he has to convince everyone he truly cares about the populace and not all out for power and public money. He needs to make the electorate to believe in more than everyone else and let everyone know he is sorry for the roles he played in the removal of Ladoja from office.
The loss of the PDP at the presidential polls may be a great harm to his aspiration. But this is Oyo state we are talking about… Anything can happen.
