share on:

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) gubernatorial candidate in Kwara state,
Dr Olajide Joseph Adebola has dispelled the rumour making around that he has defected to All Progressives Congress (APC), describing the rumour as deeply offensive and misleading.

Dr Adeola said in a vehement term that he had no intention of backstabbing his teaming and ever determined supporters by turning to any other party for personal gain.

He urged his supporters and the general public to disregard such rumour and the rumour-mongers, and challenged party officials and members involved to be bold by coming into the open for Kwara to take them seriously.

The SDP governorship hopeful disclosed this in a statement signed by Hon Kolawole Ajibade Gani Jase of the
Campaign for Olajide Joseph Adebola (COJA), affirming that SDP remains the only political party that can offer Kwara stable, credible, social, economic and political development.

“Our attention has been drawn to a mischief being unleashed against the person of the SDP gubernatorial candidate of Kwara State , Dr Olajide Joseph Adebola.

“In a cheap ploy to mislead and misinform members of the general public including our teeming party supporters, certain dubious elements have been perpetrating the ludicrous falsehood that Dr. Olajide Adebola has decamped from his chosen party, SDP to APC.

“This malicious rumor is believed to be issued and circulated by desperate political merchants working for APC with no interest in true ‘Liberation’ of Kwara; and who are willing to do anything to stop the SDP gubernatorial candidate from contesting the election this weekend.

According to the statement, “It is now obvious that these unprincipled personalities will not stop at any level no matter how ignoble to satisfy their selfish ends”.

He added that Dr. Olajide Joseph Adebola is a respectable and principled person whose political agenda is not for personal gain but for the good of his beloved Kwara State.

He stated that Olajide will not therefore stoop so low as to sell the hope of Kwara’s liberation for a morsel of bread.

“Dr Adebola and indeed all the other candidates to the State House of Assembly seats have absolutely no intention of backstabbing their supporters by turning to any other party for personal gain, the statement added..

While calling on the people of Kwara to come out in their teeming numbers to vote for SDP on Saturday 9th March, 2019, the statement reinstated that Dr Adebola and other State House of Assembly candidates are still very much in the race.
