Speaking on the planned endorsement of a joint governorship candidate for the coalition of opposition political parties in Oyo state, Mr Lapsing declared that AAC ” can never be part of any coalition as it is obvious that the parties involved are only interested in their selfish gain at the expense of the masses they claimed to be protecting their interest.”
The AAC in a statement issued in Ibadan maintained since the party is having its own candidate, there will be no basis for it to be part of endorsement of any other governorship candidate for the March 9, governorship election in the state, saying, the party ” remains focused, committed and determined to bring about a government that is welfarist concern for the people who have been deliberately pauperised by the ruling class since the beginning of the current political dispensation”.
The party added that its Governorship candidate, Mr Akinwale Laosun remains the candidate and best option for the people of the state in the coming election and that the clarification became imperative on the heels of some people attaching AAC to the coalition of opposition parties as well as to douse the tension and yearnings of the teeming party supporters and stakeholders.
According to AAC in the statement, the ruling class in the country have again with the coalition and alliances have proved that they are only interested in taking power at all cost and not minding the consequence on the people or even cared about them at all.
The party however charged the people of the state to open their eyes to the reality of selfish and self-centered politicians who would rather work for their personal interest and that of their allies, but camouflaging same in the name of the masses and that its
supporters in Oyo state should hold on to their firm belief in the party and in his candidature to transform the state in line with the party manifesto, adding that they must mobilise more people to vote and ensure the success of the party, come March 9
