It is in the public domain that Oyinlola, a Retired Army Brigadier General is a close Ally of General Ibrahim Babangida, a Former Head of State and Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo. Thus, If Oyinlola eventually emerges as the PDP Deputy National Chairman (South), The Governors believe the duo of Babangida and Obasanjo might become major decision makers in the party due to his (Oyinlola) cordial relationship with them.

Oyinlola was one of the South-West Political Elites who campaigned vigorously for the Election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015. The Former PDP National Secretary dumped the PDP to join the APC as a Founding Member, he later retraced his steps and returned to the PDP in 2020.
