The national secretary of Action Democratic Party, Victor Fingesi, says ADP is not in alliance with APC, PDP, Labour Party and other political parties in Kaduna regarding the March 18 governorship elections.
Mr Fingesi made the declaration in a statement on Wednesday in Kaduna.
According to the statement, the insinuations making the round that ADP’s gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna, Sani Sha’aban, was in alliance and had stepped down to support the candidate of another party is false.
ADP added that the claim was no doubt intended to malign the good name of the party and its gubernatorial candidate ahead of the governorship poll.
“Without a doubt, the candidate of our great party, Sani Sha’aban, being the choice of the great people of Kaduna state, remains the candidate to beat at the polls. It is unfortunate in this age that certain political players would resort to such extreme measures to discredit his person or cause confusion in the polity,” the ADP statement explained.
It also mentioned that Mr Sha’aban was in the race to win the Kaduna governorship election and had not stepped down for any other candidate.
“Sha’aban has never asked his teeming supporters to align themselves with any gubernatorial candidate. For emphasis, we reiterate that he is very much in the race as the candidate of the ADP in the Kaduna state governorship election,” said the ADP.
The party urged its faithful and the Kaduna electorate to disregard the rumour and see it as fake news.
He also appealed to all the members of the party and the public to come out in their numbers to support the party and its candidate in the elections, to restore the dignity, peace and development of Kaduna.
