PRESS RELEASE OF THE NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS OF AFRICAN DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS (ADC)
The National Working Committee NWC of African Democratic Congress (ADC) wishes to reiterate that the party is participating in the local government council elections in kogi state and that all our candidates are still in the race. The ADC as a transformational party remains committed to grassroots centered development and regards mass participation and engagement at this levels as the fulcrom for national growth and development.
We have become aware of the rumor been spread by one SHOLA ADEBOLA (alias GADAFFI) and his cotraveller that ADC has withdrawn from the raise. This is a most irresponsible and we believe sponsored action by renegade and political contractors, jobbers and rascals. We request the good people of kogi state, members of ADC and teaming supporters of our candidates to disregard the antics of these shameless interloper who has no regards for democracy. They are narrow minded opportunists without character. They do not speak for the Party Executives, Stakeholders of the Party and Contestants in the forthcoming Election and should be be disregarded.
We are not unaware that a few members of our party may have connived with the ruling party to cause mischief. But pretending to speak for the Party is Illegal, Unconstitutional, Baseless and self serving. We advice such person to fear and respect God Almighty, as any sign of ingratitude to God will not do them any good.
The African Democratic Congress (ADC) confirm our confidence in our candidates and as a Party hereby ask our teaming Members, Supporters and Followers to disregard such controversial information as the said individuals are paid agents acting based on selfish interest. And come December 12th 2020 our candidates for the forthcoming Local Government election in Kogi State would be on the ballot Paper and they would be contesting to Victory with the Peoples vote. As African Democratic Congress (ADC) is the Credible Alternative for the development and growth of our People particularly with the credible performances of our House of Representative Member and Leader of the Party Hon. (ELDER) Leke Abejide in Yagba Federal Constituency of the State. We trust the honorable member to deliver more democratic dividends to his constituency by ensuring that our sterling candidates in his constituency win.
