National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) South-West Zone, Mr. Isaac Kekemeke, yesterday, debunked the claim by the governorship candidate of the Accord Party (AP)

National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) South-West Zone, Mr. Isaac Kekemeke, yesterday, debunked the claim by the governorship candidate of the Accord Party (AP) for 2023 election in Oyo State, Mr. Adebayo Adelabu, that the presidential candidate of APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, supported his (Adelabu) defection to AP.

 
Kekemeke, who stated this, while addressing the media at the party’s secretariat when the Senator Femi Lanlehin-led 24-man reconciliation committee submitted its report to the South-West zonal executives, said that Senator Teslim Folarin remains the Oyo APC governorship candidate and that he (Folarin) had the backings of all the structure of the party right from the Presidency, the National Working Committee (NWC), South-West Zonal Executive, Oyo State executive and others to fly the party’s flag in the coming governorship election in Oyo State.  
 
“That was a false assertion by Adelabu. It cannot be true and it never happened and will never happen. It is a big lie and not possible,” he said.
 
Kekemeke, therefore, appealed to all Christians to see the next general elections beyond religious sentiment, saying: “I am a Christian and I don’t have issues with that. I want the South-West to understand that this is our best opportunity to produce a president. If we misuse it, it would take another 16 to 32 years.”
