The Action Alliance (AA) in Ondo State on Wednesday rejected all the claimants and purported candidates of the AA tickets across Ondo State.

The party has also thrown its support for all the candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) across the 18 LGAs of Ondo state.

Hon. Joshua Adewole , the National vice-chairman Southwest and Engr Williams Ogunleye, the Ondo State chiarman of AA who spoke with Starnews respectively, said the decision was in tandem with the directive of the national chairman of the party, Barr Kenneth Udeze, who, on behalf of the National executive council of AA has endorsed the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and other candidates of the PDP across Nigeria.

The full statement signed by all principal officers of the party which was made available to Starnews today reads:

It has become necessary and expedient to bring to public awareness that we the leadership of action alliance in Ondo state, after weighing all options, had decided to reject all the claimants of the AA tickets across Ondo State.

We hereby resolve to throw our support for all the candidates of the PDP across the 18 LGAs of Ondo state.

Our decision is in tandem with the directive of the national chairman of our party, Barr Kenneth Udeze, who, on behalf of the National executive council of our AA endorsed the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and other candidates of the PDP across Nigeria.

Besides this directive, it must be pointed out that the AA in Ondo State did not conduct any party primary election and as such did not field any candidates across the state. 

This position is further attested with the fact that INEC never observed any primary election of AA as required by law.

We hereby dissociate ourselves as a political party with integrity which believes in the doctrine of leadership-follwership , from all the claimants and purported candidates of our party (AA) in Ondo state.

We wish to accordingly direct all our teeming members and supporters across the state to vote all the candidates of the PDP ahead of Saturday election.
