The governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in the State of Osun, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti has said his current stay in the party is on permanent basis and not temporary.
This is just as he described as untrue, the rumour of his 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 by the Moshood Adeoti Campaign Organization’s (MACO) Director of Media and Publicity, Mr Kayode Agbaje in Osogbo, the state capital, Adeoti said 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.
