The candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the Kogi State governorship election, Leke Abejide has disclosed that he worked for President Bola Tinubu during the 2023 presidential election.
He asserted that he worked tirelessly day and night while campaigning for Tinubu.
Abejide said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is not new to him.
He disclosed this during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday.
“Asiwaju got almost the same result I got in my ward. I worked for Tinubu; I worked day and night and campaigned as a member of the ADC,” he said
Regardless of whether his action is considered anti-party, he stated that his move is tied to his loyalty to President Tinubu.
“That one is not anti-party. Asiwaju is our leader. My origin is APC, and right from time, even till tomorrow, any party I go to, Asiwaju remains my leader,” he added.
Speaking further, Abejide who is a candidate for governor in the upcoming Kogi State election claimed that the APC has been pressuring him to step down in favor of its candidate Usman Ododo.
But he asserted that if their candidate steps aside for him, the APC has nothing to lose.
“Based on what is on the ground in the state, if Ododo steps down for me, it will not be a bad idea. I came from APC to ADC. I was the leader of APC from my side before. APC has not lost anything if Ododo steps down for me,” he said.
