The African Action Congress (AAC), in the buildup of the upcoming Ondo state Gubernatorial election, has publicly denied its involvement in the endorsement of the People’s Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede.
This was released in a press statement signed by the party’s National chairman, Omoyele Sowore.
According to the release, claims of endorsement by AAC was a false publication as such an act went against the principles of the party.
“Our attention has been drawn to a false publication across the media about 11 political parties endorsing PDP’s candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, in the forthcoming Ondo gubernatorial election in which our dear party, AAC, was also falsely reported to be part of the unholy endorsement.
We want to make it categorically clear and loud that as a revolutionary party, we are not and will never be part of an alliance or endorsement which only objective and goal is to continue to weaponise poverty and keep Nigerians in 21st-century slavery. We distance our party completely from this unholy alliance and also want to use this opportunity to appeal to all members and supporters of our dear party including the general public to disregard the information being peddled around the media space.
The African Action Congress is a party of oppressed Nigerians (poor and working people) and will continue to fight and stand with the masses.
