Why I Didn’t Honour BBC’s Invitation for Guber Debate- Sarafa Alli


The Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) gubernatorial candidate in Oyo state, Chief Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli on Friday disclosed that his absence at the BBC gubernatorial debate was deliberate

Alli and Engineer Seyi Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party were absent at the debate held at Theophilus Ogunlesi Hall UCH Ibadan

He said he  didn’t honour the invitation extended to him because the organizers failed to feature him in the advertisements preceding the event.

The former Secretary to the State Government and immediate past Chairman, Odu’a Investment Company Ltd, maintained that the attention of the organisers was drawn to the error in the advertisements and they promised to effect a correction.

He said subsequent advertisements made by them, failed to bear his image and other details as one of the invitees to the event.

Alli said their last minutes pleading to assuage his feelings to appear came rather too late ‘because I have scheduled other campaign tours for the day, outside Ibadan, the state capital
