ADC Candidate, Fatai Akinbade Agrees To Work With Adeleke In Osun Rerun

Osun, Nigeria News 25th September, 2018: The candidate of the African Democratic Congress, in last Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State, Mr Fatai Akinbade, has declared that he would throw his weight behind the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleke, in the forthcoming Thursday rerun.

Akinbade who scored 7,681 votes in the election, left the PDP after a disagreement over the party’s governorship primary and defected to the ADC.

He was later handed the governorship ticket and became ADC candidate in the election.

Asked if he had regret leaving the party especially when his over 7,000 votes would have been enough to win the election for the PDP, Akinbade said he had no regret.

He added that Adeleke was lucky to still be in the race after he (Akinbade)and Iyiola Omisore left to join other parties.

He, however, said he did not play the spoiler for Adeleke and the PDP and that it was time to help the party secure the victory on Thursday, having gone this far.




Akinbade said, “The election has come and gone but unfortunately, there is no winner yet; so, all of us that took part in the election are still in it even though the contest is narrowed down to two candidates. On Thursday, one of them must emerge through rerun.

“I have no regret not being one of the two or taking part in the election. The electorate must be respected; I cannot impose myself on them. I was in the PDP but due to differences, I left to contest in the ADC. Omisore also left to contest in the Social Democratic Party. As it is, the PDP was lucky to remain in the race. It is a lot of achievement despite all odds.”
