Chief Adebayo Adelabu, the governorship candidate of the Accord Party (AP) in Oyo State, said he will not step down from the governorship race, despite recent rumours.

This is contained in a press statement issued by the Bayo Adelabu Campaign Organisation (BACO) on Saturday.

According to the aspirant, the rumours of his withdrawal from the race are the handiwork of political desperados, who are determined to keep Oyo in a web of lies and ineptitude.

He noted that the upsurge in misinformation, malignment and outright fake news against him within the few days to the election was a testament to the acceptance of his message of awakening the electorate in the state.

Adelabu reiterated that other candidates were already jittery about his popularity and the people of the state are already aware of the antics of some politicians which cannot take them anywhere in the governorship election.

“Their anger is that the citizens have woken up and are ready to take back our State. Through my campaign, I have not, and will not engage in their politics of character assassination, bitterness and lies.

“We want to inform the good people of Oyo State that there was no time Chief Adebayo Adelabu held any meetings with any candidates or political parties with a view to stepping down.

“This was another lie from a political schizophrenic, whose political career was built on falsehood and manipulations. Chief Adebayo Adelabu is not stepping down for anyone.

“Rather than allowing those political liars to distract us, Adelabu will focus on how Oyo state will have potable water, a clean environment, smooth and car-worthy roads and how our youths can begin to dream again while technology will be harnessed for the progress of everyone.

“My focus is on getting the electorate to know where their fingerprint will go on March 11.

“Adelabu is contesting to win the gubernatorial election in Oyo state under Accord and our door is open to any candidate who wishes to join us in liberating the state”, the statement read.
