Nigeria News – Labour Party May Concede Its Gubernatorial Ticket To Amosun’s Candidate, Adekunle Akinlade
On Monday, Labour Party (LP) in Ogun State said it may concede its gubernatorial ticket to the Ogun State Governor’s candidate, Adekunle Akinlade.
Ibikunle Amosun’s candidate, Akinlade lost the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket to Dapo Abiodun, Tinubu’s candidate.
Abayomi Arabambi, LP Chairman in Ogun State, spoke on a radio programme tagged ‘Fact Finder’ on Sweet FM 107.1.
Arabambi confirmed ongoing talks between his party and the grieving Ibikunle Amosun’s-led bloc of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He stated that the party was still within the constitutional right to substitute the name before the electoral umpire’s deadline.
Arabambi stated, “There is hope for Triple A (Akinlade) and others, the constitution allows for substitution and I think we are still in tandem but nobody would tell me we have pseudo names.
“What we are saying is that it is open to all political parties when you have some parameters being satisfied in your political party, you’re satisfied to substitute so far it is still within the window.
“In the next two weeks, we are going to reveal and unveil our candidate from Ipokia local government; we have so many good hands in Ipokia, we are going to Ipokia for our governorship, it is sealed, signed and delivered.”
