Wale Akinselure

In a letter addressed to the National Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Wednesday evening, national chairman of Accord, Honourable Nalado Muhammad announced the immediate dissolution of the State exco of the party in Oyo over “anti-party activities and gross misconduct.”

The letter signed by Nalodo said the decision was reached at an emergency meeting of the National Working Committee of the party held at its national secretariat, Abuja, on Wednesday.

Nalado said the party has no alliance with Governor Seyi Makinde going into the March 11 governorship election.

“Nothing can be further from the truth. Our governorship candidate in Oyo State remains Adebayo Adelabu. We are convinced he has the perfect pedigree to turn Oyo into an enjoyable haven,” he said.

The party leadership subsequently announced the appointment of a caretaker committee led by Mr Isiaka Salami to oversee the affairs of the party pending the conduct of a state congress.

Other members of the caretaker committee are Mr Fatai Salawu, Mrs Bimpe Martins, Mr Ayodele Oyajide with Mr Bashiru Ayobami as secretary.
