The national chairman of Accord party (A), Muhammad Lawal Nalado has denied alleged endorsement of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, saying it was the handiwork of mischief makers.
Note that on Saturday morning, a letter signed by one Isaac Adeniyie, who claims to be the chairman of Accord party, had claimed that the party had adopted the Labour Party’s candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
The latter was also signed by Umar Abdul, who claimed to be the National Secretary.
However, in a statement issued yesterday by the National chairman of the party, Muhammad Lawal Nalado, Accord said the alleged endorsement by Isaac Adeniyie is null and void.
Nalado said Isaac Adeniyie and Umar Abdul are impostors, and no longer members of Accord Party, having been expelled by the party for gross anti party activities.
He recalled how Isaac Adeniyi, who he said is an ex officio member, went to court against the National leadership of Accord, which he discontinued close to judgement, having seen the impending defeat.
To this, Nalado said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) does not recognise Adeniyi in any capacity, hence he cannot claim that Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi has been adopted as Accord Party presidential candidate.
He therefore said Christopher Imumolen remains the candidate of Accord, and has not and will not step down for any candidate, just as he urged Nigerians to vote Accord candidates across board, starting from the President down to State Assembly candidates.
