Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, the former Governor of Oyo State, has died.


The death of the former Oyo State governor and deputy governor was confirmed by sources close to the Alao-Akala family.

Alao-Akala was 71 years old when he died.

From May 2003 to January 2006, he was the Deputy Governor of Oyo State. Following the impeachment of the then-incumbent Governor (Rashidi Ladoja), Alao-Akala was sworn in and served for 11 months.

The Supreme Court overturned the impeachment in December 2006, and Rashidi Ladoja was reinstated.

Alao-Akala ran for and won the gubernatorial election in 2007 as the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, becoming the executive governor of Oyo state for a full term until May 2011.
