Oke’s choice splits AD

11 October 2016, 15:51

Akure - Members of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in Ondo State are split over the choice of Olusola Oke as the party’s candidate for the November 26 governorship election in the state, reports Vanguard.

While members of the state executive of the AD insist that Oke has fulfilled all conditions to qualify him as the party candidate, the Youth wing of the party  has disowned him.

The youths under the aegis of Ondo Alliance for Democracy (AD), Youth Vanguard (OADYV), said they would only recognise Akin Olowokere as the flag bearer of the party.

They denied any involvement in a process which led to the replacement of Olowokere with Oke.

But addressing newsmen in Akure, the Chairman and Secretary, Messrs Seriki Adebobola and Sola Agboola respectively said that Oke has been chosen as a replacement of the former flag bearer of the party.

The party executive dissociated itself from the protest of the youths saying the Youth Group was alien to the party.

Oke according to News 24 came third in the September 3 governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which was won by Rotimi Akeredolu

But Oke defected to AD after APC’s National Working Committee upheld Akeredolu’s election against the Appeal panel’s decision that a fresh primary election should be conducted.
