The Action Democratic Party (ADP) and Young Progressives Party refused to
break down the party’s hierarchy to assist Eyitayo Jegede of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead the Ondo State Governorship election.
Refuting the report, Yabagi Sani, the national chairman of the ADP, stated that his party had not retreated from the governing race.
The assertion that his party’s aspirant and 10 others withdrew from the governorship election, based on Sani, was supported by some self-seeking jobbers politics.
“I wish to draw your attention to a malicious statement sponsored by some self-seeking
political jobbers, who purportedly reported that the ADP alongside nine other participating
political parties has withdrawn from the governorship race in Ondo State to support the PDP candidate.
“Our candidate, Prince Martin Kunle Olateru-Olagbegi, a loyal party member, patriotic
Nigerian and an international figure, is still very much in the race to occupy the Oduduwa House, come 10th October 2020 by the grace of God,” he stated.
In a similar growth, during an interview with Channels Television, YPP’s governorship
nominee, Dotun Ojon, refuted pulling from the governorship race.
Ojon, who refuted the allegation, stated that he was not prepared to step aside for anyone.
Ojon stated, “that’s not true, YPP isn’t for sale, and we’re not prepared to step down for anybody “, when questioned if he stepped down to assist a top political party.
“For us, it is a sign that YPP has become a force in Ondo State that everyone wants to
identify with. When we started, nobody gave us a chance. Nobody knew we could come this far,” Ojon indicated.
It is noted that Flashywap earlier on Tuesday announced that Omoyele Sowore, National
Chairman of the African Action Congress, also refuted the reports that his party was one of the 11 parties that disintegrated its systems to assist Jegede.
