Osun 2018: ADP Candidate is Not Available For Sale – Akere



Former Commissioner for Information and Strategy in Osun State, also a chieftain of Action Democratic Party (ADP), Oluomo Sunday Akere has disregarded the rumour that the party governorship candidate Alhaji Moshood Adeoti had sold his candidacy to another party in the coming September 22 Osun governorship election.

A prominent member of the ADP said that the ADP doors are widely open for members of other political parties in the state to team up with the party and ensure ADP’s victory at the governorship poll.

“The ADP remains the party to beat in the September 22 governorship election and its candidate, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti can’t afford to waste the people’s support for his ambition by surrendering the mandate to another candidate from another party.

“Those harbouring the thought should rather bury it, as our party, and its candidate is not available for sale,” Akere emphasized.

The governorship candidate of the ADP reiterated as untrue, a recent rumour making the rounds that he had concluded plans to surrender his mandate and align with one of the political parties and its candidate ahead of the September 22 gubernatorial election in Osun State.

In a statement acquired by Nigeria Happenings issued by the Director of Media and Publicity, Mr Kayode Agbaje in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.

According to Alhaji Adeoti, his decision to contest in the governorship election was never for any self-serving reason but in the best interest of the masses.

“I didn’t just wake up one day to say I wanted to contest in the governorship election for self-serving purpose.
“I have the support of the people who believe in my ability to take Osun to the next level,” Alhaji Adeoti stated.

The ADP candidate further stated that since he secured the ADP’s governorship ticket, the thought to surrender his supporters’ mandate has never for once crossed his mind.

While calling on his teeming supporters across all the party divides to disregard such rumour, Alhaji Adeoti called on other political parties with progressive backgrounds to join hands with him and the ADP to create a state of their dreams.

He further warned the masterminds of the rumour to desist from spreading such rumours that are capable of confusing the electorate.

“While I want to use this opportunity to appeal to my teeming supporters in the ADP and those in other parties to disregard such rumours from the pit of hell, I also want to warn the masterminds of such rumours to desist and stop from causing confusion among the electorate,” Alhaji Adeoti stressed.

The ADP flagbearer also used the occasion to lay to rest insinuations from certain quarters that he would dump the ADP once he wins the election and go back to the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying his current stay in the ADP is on permanent basis and not temporary.
