The Accord Party has denied adopting the Ogun State governor and APC candidate, Dapo Abiodun, as its governorship candidate ahead of Saturday, March 18 governorship election.

Chairman of the party, Tajudeen Olayokun who disclosed this to journalists in Abeokuta on Saturday, distanced the party from the purported endorsement of Abiodun, insisting that the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) remained their candidate.

A faction of the party led by Adebisi Adewale had announced that the party had adopted Abiodun as its gubernatorial candidate.

But, Olayokun said there was no going back on the party’s adoption of Adebutu as its candidate for the March 18 governorship election.

Olayokun described those behind the purported endorsement of Abiodun as “miscreants and misguided elements” who are only concerned about their pockets and not the development of the state.

He noted that the decision to support the PDP governorship candidate was because his ideology tallied with that of AP in terms of capacity building, rural and infrastructure development, agriculture and security.
