I’m in the Race to Win – ADC Guber Candidate, Abejide

The gubernatorial candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Kogi state Hon. Leke Abejide has stated that nothing will make him withdraw from the governorship race, as he is in the race to win.

Abejide, declared this on Saturday in a statement debunking insinuations and hints being spread around that he had stepped down and merged with another political party.

He denied meeting to negotiate his withdrawal or a merger with another candidate.

“It has come to my knowledge that there are speculations and some media announcements sponsored by some individuals in Kogi state, claiming that I, Rt. Hon. Leke Abejide, the Kogi African Democratic Congress (ADC) gubernatorial candidate has stepped down based on some unfounded instructions, negotiations, or merger to support APC in Kogi State, which I did not.

“I am here stating that all the rumours that are out there purportedly being sold by some people in some quarters are nothing but false.

“Kogi State ADC is not collapsing its structure into supporting another candidate or the ruling party. As the candidate of the party, I have not stepped down for any candidate, we are not stepping down for anybody, and we are not going to step down for anybody, this is the time to rescue Kogi State.

“There has not been any formal meeting between Kogi State ADC and any political party as such, to say that we are on a round-table discussing withdrawal or stepping down from the gubernatorial race”.
