As the 2020 Ondo primary elections across diferent political parties draws nearer, the Olayide Adelami Campaign Organization has condemned in strong terms claims by the chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Owo, Sydney Ogunleye that Chief Olayide Adelami, one of the gubernatorial aspirants under the party is not a registered member.

In a statement signed by Segun Ogodo, the Olayide Adelami Campaign Organization, the group expressed deep concern that Ogunleye is using his position to bring down members and unnecessarily overheating the polity by declaring their principal as non-member of the party.

Ogunleye had earlier issued a statement disowning Adelami as unknown to Owo local government APC, a declaration which has been generating and brewing crisis in the area where the incumbent Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is also from.

The statement further reads: “Mr Ogunleye also knows that Chief Adelami as Coordinator of the Presidential Support Committee for the Buhari/Osibajo 2019 project worked with party structures and leaders within the Party.

While we would have expected Mr Ogunleye to have provided a level playing field for all aspirants, especially from Owo, the present sing-song brings many questions to the mind. It is unfortunate that Mr Ogunleye who on different occasions has told ward chairmen in Owo local government to warmly welcome all aspirants, especially Chief Adelami who he sees as the next governor of the state, would be willing to be a tool in the hands of desperate and drowning politicians for personal benefits and enhancement”.


The group also alleged the present government of fueling violence in the area.

Read the full text of the Press Statement by Adelami below;

Olayide Adelami is a bonafide APC member, Akeredolu is the Sponsor of Violence in Owo.

The Olayide Adelami campaign organization strongly condemns a spurious claim by the chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Owo, Sydney Ogunleye that our Principal, Chief Olayide Adelami is not a registered member of our great party.

We duly acknowledge the place of party structures right from the ward to the national level and of the belief that they should be used to promote cohesion rather than bringing members down and unnecessarily overheating the polity.

While we would have loved to get to the field before we disprove the claims of Mr Ogunleye and his paymasters that Chief Adelami is not known in the APC, we will advise him to be less economical with the truth on our principal’s membership status.

Mr Ogunleye also knows that Chief Adelami as Coordinator of the Presidential Support Committee for the Buhari/Osibajo 2019 project worked with party structures and leaders within the Party.

While we would have expected Mr Ogunleye to have provided a level playing field for all aspirants, especially from Owo, the present sing-song brings many questions to the mind.

It is unfortunate that Mr Ogunleye who on different occasions has told ward chairmen in Owo local government to warmly welcome all aspirants, especially Chief Adelami who he sees as the next governor of the state, would be willing to be a tool in the hands of desperate and drowning politicians for personal benefits and enhancement

For now, our concern remains engaging party members across the eighteen council areas and stakeholders outside the state on why Chief Adelami is the perfect replacement for the present wasteful and deceitful Government that has continued to give our dear party a bad name.

We also categorically state that Ondo state Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, is the sponsor of violence in Owo town, apparently jolted by his waning acceptance in contrast to the overwhelming popularity of Chief Adelami.

The unprovoked attacks on Chief Adelami’s supporters and campaign vehicles in different parts of Owo local government are well documented and have been reported to security agencies.

On Saturday, 13th June, these same thugs who go round town in an Aketi-branded vehicle visited the residence of Mrs Esther Olotu-Anunobi, a former aide to the immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives and a strong supporter of our principal, where they were they shot sporadically into the air while shouting that the woman should come out. She had to escape through the backdoor and has since abandoned the house. It took the intervention of the Nigerian Police Force to disperse the hoodlums who laid siege on the house for almost an hour.

We reiterate that we are not unaware of the streaks of falsehoods and evil machination they have lined up against us in the days ahead, but ours is a campaign based on people driven issues, devoid of violence and rumour mongering and falsehood. We will not be distracted even in the face of intimidation. Our focus is to rescue our dear sunshine state from the Present government of the Father, Mother and Children

We shall never stoop so low to the level of physical attacks or sponsoring lies against any aspirant as our principal is a decent and honest man who sees every other aspirants as members of the same APC family.

Signed:

Segun Ogodo, Esquire
Spokesman, Olayide Adelami Campaign Organization
