Candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akure South area of Ondo State, contesting for the Senate and House of Representatives, Bashorun Ifedayo Adedipe and Kemisola Adesanya, say it is misleading the campaign posters making the round that they are backing APC Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Residents of Akure South on Wednesday woke up to the news that the two PDP candidates are using the image of Mr Tinubu of the APC to seek for votes, after posters showing the trio flooded Akure metropolis.

However, in a joint press briefing on Saturday in Akure, the Ondo State Capital, the duo of Adedipe and Adesanya, reiterated their commitment to the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

They noted that the group which was responsible for the posters is unknown to them.

“Although we welcome support from members of other political parties who believe in our personalities and ability to represent them well at the National Assembly but our belief and support for our great party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON is total, unalloyed and unflinching,” they said.

The full statement at the press briefing is reproduced below:

Gentlemen of the press, We are here this afternoon to further respond to posters pasted within Akure metropolis displaying our pictures, Bashorun Ifedayo Adedipe and Hon Kemi Adesanya with that of the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, purportedly designed and pasted by a group of people called Akure Progressive Forum. We will like to say with emphasis that this group is unknown to us.

We have immediately responded through a joint press release which was under reported, hence the need for this press conference.

We are candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and have no connection whatsoever with the said group.

Both of us are focused and have a clear direction on our ambitions, political ideologies and that of our party, the PDP.

Although we welcome support from members of other political parties who believe in our personalities and ability to represent them well at the National Assembly but our belief and support for our great party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON is total, unalloyed and unflinching.

We hereby wish to further reiterate our commitment to our party and our ambition for a quality representation, for the good people of our constituencies, to influence policies, that will improve the lives of our constituents. We believe there are so many ways to better the lives of our people, than the present situation in the country.

We hereby urge our supporters and the electorates as a whole to remain resolute and vote for a new narrative represented by the PDP, to rescue Nigeria, come 25th of February and 11th of March, 2023.

We urge the electorates, to vote for all the candidates presented by the PDP across board, to put an end to the hardship and the abysmal failure of the present APC government.
