The governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in the governorship election in Osun State, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti has denied a rumour milling round of his possible defection back into the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The statement of denial was contained a release by his media aide, Mr Kayode Agbaje and and made available to newsmen in Osogbo, the state capital.
According to him, the truth stands that Alhaji Adeoti attended a peace meeting initiated by the Governor-elect in Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi in Osogbo.
The said meeting was not any way connected to the possible return of the ADP flagbearer back to the APC.
“A peace meeting was called on the initiative of Dr Kayode Fayemi and as a politician committed to peace in Osun State, I attended.
“At the said meeting no one discussed the issue of my possible return to the APC,” Alhaji Adeoti stated.
He however admonished his numerous supporters and party members to disregard the rumour and assuring all that the ADP is solidly one, and currently busy organizing itself to field candidates for all elections in the 2019 general poll.
“I want to assure all my supporters and ADP members in the state that I still remain in the ADP without the slightest thought of going back to APC or any other political party for that matter,” the ADP flagbearer emphasized.
In his own reaction to the rumour, a prominent member of the ADP in the state, Mr Sunday Akere stressed that the ADP has come to stay, as the major assignment before all the members is how to make the party stronger and make it field candidates for all elections in 2019.
