National Working Committee of the African Democratic Congress said the party will participate in the forthcoming Local Government elections coming up in Kogi State.
National Chairman of the party, Chief Ralf Nwosu, said ADC would be participating in the local government council elections in Kogi State, stressing that all its candidates were still in the race.
In a statement he personally signed, the ADC national chairman debunked rumour that the party would not partake in the exercise.
He said, “We have become aware of the rumours being spread by one SHOLA ADEBOLA (alias GADAFFI) and his co-travellers that ADC has withdrawn from the race. This is most irresponsible. We believe it was a sponsored action, which some renegades, political contractors, jobbers and rascals have latched on to fester their selfishness.
“We request the good people of Kogi State, members of ADC and teeming supporters of our candidates to disregard the antics of these shameless interlopers who have no regard 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 disregarded.
“We advise such persons to fear and respect God Almighty, as any sign of ingratitude to God will not do them any good.”
He further said, “Come December 12, 2020, our candidates for the forthcoming Local Government elections in Kogi State will be on the ballot paper and they will be contesting to victory with the peoples votes, as the African Democratic Congress (ADC) is the Credible Alternative for the development and growth of the state and people, particularly with the credible performances of our House of Representatives Member and Leader of the Party, Hon. (ELDER) Leke Abejide of the Yagba Federal Constituency.”
