By Adeola Oladele, Ibadan
The Oyo State Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) has again insisted that Mr Rotimi Ajanaku remains the only authentic candidate for Ibadan North-West/South-West Federal Constituency.
While addressing journalists in a media briefing held at Bodija residence of the leader of the party and a former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, on Monday, the state Chairman of the party, Mr Wole Abisoye emphasized that only recognized candidate for the the constituency was Mr. Ajanaku, stressing that he has fulfilled all the conditions and the National Headquarters of the party recognized him.
The National Chairman led other party executive members all the way from Abuja to present him the party’s flag as the symbol of authority and recognition.
Meanwhile, the party denied the rumour in some quarters that it had formed an alliance with another, adding that it was unfounded and a fake report.
“Neither the party, nor its leader , Senator Rashidi Ladoja was in merger talk with any political party,” he disclosed.
Abisoye, however, berated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for issuing a statement stopping the candidates from campaigning, a week to the polls, saying that: “It is unconstitutional to stop campaign now when the law stipulates that campaign must run till 24hours to the elections.”
