National Chairman of Accord party, Malam Muhammad Nalado has debunked rumours that the party has entered into alliance with Gov. Seyi Makinde for the March 11 governorship election.
He spoke on Wednesday while reacting to information that the party has entered into a pact to support Gov Makinde. “Nothing can be further from the truth. We have always been aware of the anti-party antics of the State Chairman, Mr. Kolade Ojo and those encouraging him.
We have it on good authority that they collected N500M from Governor Makinde who has been running helter-skelter having known that the people have pitched their tents with Accord and Adelabu.
Our governorship candidate in Oyo State remains Adebayo Adelabu. We are convinced he has the perfect pedigree to turn Oyo State into an enjoyable haven “.
Nalado said the party leadership would soon meet to issue appropriate sanctions on those responsible for the anti-party activities as evidenced in the action of Kolade Ojo, the Party Secretary and those encouraging the anti party activity.”
Similarly, Chairmen of Accord across the 33 local government in the State have dissociated themselves from the latest development. “ The State Chairman and Secretary are on their own. There was no time we had any meeting to support any other candi/date other than Adelabu.
Adelabu Penkelemesi remains our governorship candidate.
