The National Chairman of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) Yabagi Sani, has reaffirmed that the party’s candidate in the October 10 Ondo State governorship election won’t back out in the race.
Sani who said this at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, debunked speculations that the party’s candidate has withdrawn from the race.
He further viewed the rumor as a plan by the oppositions to disenfranchise the party’s supporters and jeopardise the increasing chance of the party’s victory in the said election.
The party chairman noted that it was a fact that the ADP was poised to win Saturday’s election, hence the attack from self-seeking “political jobbers.”
Sani said, “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political jobbers, who purportedly reported that the ADP alongside nine other participating political parties has withdrawn from the governorship race in Ondo State to support the PDP candidate.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.”
Meanwhile, the candidates in the October 10 election has signed a peace treaty ahead the election day to ensure safety of citizens’ life and properties.
