Ex-Lagos PDP N/Assembly candidates reject litigation

‘…Jandor, not our leader’

PDP Candidates in Lagos Disassociate Themselves from Party’s Court Case and Intra-Party DisputesSenatorial and House of Representatives candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State during last year’s election have distanced themselves from a court case filed against the party leadership.

Addressing reporters in Lagos, former Lagos East senatorial candidate Nicholas Akobada emphasized their disassociation from the lawsuit and the accusations surrounding it.

Akobada criticized the recourse to litigation at a time when the national leadership was focused on reconciliation and healing within the party.

He emphasized that they were not part of the plaintiffs and condemned the lawsuits as mischievous and embarrassing.

Akobada accused those behind the litigation of having self-serving motives and causing unnecessary distractions within the party.

He stressed the importance of resolving grievances internally through the party’s mechanisms, highlighting the need for mutual respect between the party leadership and former candidates.

Akobada acknowledged the challenges faced in the build-up to the 2023 general election but called for learning from the experience, making amends, and working towards a better future for the party.

He emphasized the forum’s commitment to peaceful coexistence and compliance with the party’s constitution to create a conducive atmosphere for success.

Furthermore, former House of Representatives candidates Bobby Jeje and Olumuyiwa Owadara rejected claims by former governorship candidate Olajide Adediran (Jandor) to leadership of the chapter. They affirmed the leadership of established figures within the party, highlighting Jandor’s electoral losses and emphasizing the need for unity within the PDP in Lagos State.
