APC governorship aspirant, Adelabu defects to Accord party


The governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the last party primaries, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has defected to the Accord party.

Adelabu left the APC with over 5000 supporters from the 33 local government areas of the state.

It will be recalled that Adelabu boycotted the APC primaries held at the Liberty Stadium, Ibadan which saw the emergence of Senator Teslim Folarin as the party’s governorship candidate in 2023.

Describing the outcome of the primaries as unacceptable, Adelabu who contested the governorship election under the platform of the APC in 2019 but lost to Governor Seyi Makinde in 2023 decided to contest under the platform of another party.
