- The Adelami campaign organisation has reiterated its earlier stance that its principal is a bonafide member of the APC
- The group said there are plans to discredit the membership of Chief Olaide Owolabi Adelami
- Chief Adelami is the leading aspirant in the forthcoming Ondo APC primary election
Ahead of the Ondo governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Adelami campaign organisation has raised an alarm over an alleged plot to discredit the membership of its principal, Chief Olaide Owolabi Adelami.
The campaign team in a statement sent to journalists on Wednesday, June 24, by its spokesman, Barrister Segun Ogodo, urged the national leadership of the APC and the presidency to disregard what is described as “campaign of calumny” against its principal.
The statement noted that Adelami is a registered member of the APC in Igboroko 2 ward 3, adding that he worked assiduously for the success of all APC candidates in the 2019 general election.
“We hereby call on the leadership of APC, the presidency and all members of our great party to disregard this malicious and fallacious harassment coming from a governor who openly campaigned and worked against APC and the reelection bid of President Muhammadu Buhari,” the campaign team stated.
The statement further alleged that some persons were planning to induce threats to life in forcing local government chairmen in the state to falsely claim that Chief Adelami is not a member of the APC.
“Chief Adelami had been at the forefront of promoting party cohesion in Ondo state, a job he started in 2018 when he was appointed state coordinator of the Presidential Support Committee.
“We reiterate for the umpteenth time that Chief Olayide Adelami is a registered member of the APC, having worked closely with him the governor during his election in 2016 and during the presidential election in 2019 and having seen his membership card on several occasions,” the statement concluded.
Recall that the campaign organisation had recently asked security agencies to hold Governor Rotimi Akeredolu responsible if any life is lost during the APC primary election.
In a statement sent to journalists on Tuesday, June 23 the group accused the governor of aiding and abetting gross insecurity in the state particularly in Owo, his hometown.
The organisation further asked the security agencies to investigate and make proper arrests before the Monday, July 20 primary election.
