2023: I Remain The Governorship Candidate Of Accord Party – Saheed Ajadi

Saheed Ajadi, a businessman and politician, has said that he ramains the governorship candidate of Accord party in Oyo state for the 2023 general election.

He called on members of the party to disregard the purported primary election scheduled to hold in the state.

In a statement on Friday, Ajadi maintained that he remains the only aspirant that acquired the party’s governorship form and was elected as consensus candidate of the party in the state following a primary in Ibadan witnessed by the INEC and other relevant stakeholders.

He said that Chief Bayo Adelabu is not a member of Accord Party in Oyo state adding that he has no membership card.

He called on the party members and stakeholders to disregard the proposed primary by some people who are not members of the party as a ploy to destabilize the party in Oyo state.

His words: “I want to say this without any iota of doubt that I remain the only governorship candidate of Accord Party in Oyo State.

“I am the consensus candidate and INEC representatives and REC were present including state officials DSS and other security operatives at the party primary in Ibadan. I am the only one who bought the forms for governorship in Accord. I want the party stakeholders and executives to disregard claims by some people who are not members of our party.

“They are not registered members of the party. INEC has already recognized the bona-fide and legitimate Accord party” he said.

Meanwhile, insideoyo.com gathered that a gubernatorial primary election of the party took on Monday 6th June, 2023 at Iyaganku in Ibadan.

Residential Electoral Commission in Oyo state, Mutiu Agboke (PhD) and his management team were in attendance.

This was made known in a post on a social media account of the commission.

It reads: “Hon. REC in Oyo State Mutiu Agboke (Ph.D) with his Management Team also attended Accord Party Governorship Primary held at Iyaganku, Ibadan.

“REC admonished party members to play the game of conducting Primaries in line with the Rules and Regulations of the Commission. The event took place today -6th June 2022.”
