Mr. Alao-Akala told journalists in Ibadan that he will make his intention known at a forum billed for the Watershed Events Centre in the state capital.
Mr. Alao-Akala, an aspirant under the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, will be seeking the governorship position.
The governorship aspirant, who is from Ogbomoso, said he would hold a procession with his supporters round the capital on Thursday morning before moving to the venue.
Mr. Alao-Akala, who was elected as a deputy governor to former Governor Rashidi Ladoja in 2003, later governed the state between 2007 and 2011.
