On Wednesday, Muhammad Nalado, the National Chairman of Accord, declared that the party has no alliance with Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde.
According to information obtained by The Daily Post, Mr. Kolade Ojo, the party's state chairman, and a few party executive members have endorsed Makinde.
Makinde is running again on the PDP's platform, and Chief Adebayo Adelabu is the party's nominee for governor.
Regarding the alleged endorsement of Makinde by the party executives, Nalado added that such an endorsement was the work of political operatives.
He added that the state chairman and secretary are on their own while stating that Adelabu and all of Accord's candidates for the House of Assembly are still in the running.
Nalado said, “The misinformation that Accord is in pact with the PDP in Oyo State is nothing further from the truth. We have always been aware of the anti-party antics and activities of the State Chairman, Mr. Kolade Ojo, and those encouraging him.
“Our governorship candidate in Oyo State remains Adebayo Adelabu. We are convinced he has the perfect pedigree to turn Oyo State into an enjoyable haven.
“The party leadership would soon meet to issue appropriate sanctions on the anti-party activities, as evidenced in the action of Kolade Ojo, the party secretary, and those encouraging the anti-party activity.
“The State Chairman and Secretary are on their own. There was no time we had any meetings to support any other candidate other than Adelabu. Adelabu Penkelemesi remains our governorship candidate.
