The Kogi governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the November 11th election, Murtala Yakubu Ajaka has reacted to reports of stepping down from the race n a last minute decision.
Ajaka denied the reports which pitched him stepping down for Leke Abejide, candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
In a statement signed by the Director General, New Media, MuriSam Campaign Council, Isaiah Davies Ijele debunked reports that the SDP candidate has collapsed his gubernatorial structure with that of the ADC.
Recall that a purported letter of withdrawal started to circulate online on November 3, 2023.
However, Ijele said the letter was “false and baseless, adding that it was the work of “miscreants” and the “sinking ship” of the ruling party in Kogi state.
He said the report was nothing but a figment of the imagination of mischievous people to cause disaffection against the party at this stage of the race.
“Murtala Yakubu Ajaka is the candidate of the people and cannot step down for anyone at this point. It is already beyond him; Ajaka is the movement of the people as ordained by God,” he said.
