2023: ADC Denies Endorsement Of Peter Obi

2023: ADC Denies Endorsement Of Peter Obi | Daily Report Nigeria

The African Democratic Congress (ADC) has denied its previously reported endorsement of Peter Obi, the standard bearer of the Labour Party.

The ADC in a statement in Abuja later on Monday described the alleged endorsements as fraudulent, void, and of no effect.

This was because the previous endorsement was carried out by a faction of the party not known to law for pecuniary gains, ADC insisted.

It hence blamed a faction of the Party, led by its immediate past National Chairman, Ralph Nwosu for the anti-party activity.

Nwosu’s faction had allegedly divided itself into three groups which are now illegally engaged in endorsing parties like the All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 general elections all in a bid to make quick money, according to the party.

The party further warned those involved in the act to desist or face the full wrath of the law.

It held that its Presidential Candidate for 2023, Dumebi Kachikwu, had “long warned about criminals in ADC who sell the party to the bigger parties..

They have divided themselves into three groups and collected money from APC, PDP, and Labour. One party, three endorsements within the space of four days. Shameful.”

The party under the interim leadership of Senator Patricia Akwashiki stated that those who approved Obi’s endorsement were no longer members of the party and therefore had nothing to do with the authentic ADC recognized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The ADC again said:

We are appalled that renegades who are no longer known to the ADC can constitute themselves into a criminal gang to perpetuate illegalities all in the name of making quick money.

“This condemnable action will not stop our party or its presidential candidate from running the race to the very end.

“We are determined to ensure that the bright chances of all ADC candidates in the forthcoming general elections are not sold or
mortgaged as was the practice in the past.

“The arm of the law will soon catch up with all those responsible for these criminal and shameful activities.”
