Meanwhile, a statement released by Hon. Joseph Omorogbe, the party's national spokesperson, confirmed that Comrade Kennedy Iyere is the rightful candidate for the position.

The statement was made available to Legit. ng on Wednesday, March 26, and it reads partly:

"It's imperative to clarify that Comrade Kennedy Iyere rightfully holds that position, having emerged from the party's primaries on February 17, 2024, and his candidacy has been duly registered on the INEC portal. Mr. Bright Enabulele, on the other hand, is rightfully listed as Comrade Iyere’s running mate."

The National Chairman of Accord, Barr Maxwell Mgbudem, has strongly criticised disseminating false information, warning that it could fuel unnecessary political tensions.

Mgbudem urges party members and the public to reject this misleading narrative.

He also calls on politicians to act professionally and responsibly, highlighting the need to avoid actions that could divide party members or mislead the public.
