Accord Party has withdrawn its support for Abdukareem Jubrin, its house of assembly candidate for the Saturday, March 9 elections.

The party cited anti-party activities as the reason for its withdrawal.

Speaking with journalists after an emergency state executive committee meeting in Lagos on Thursday, Joseph Beckely, chairman of AP, said the party had notified the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of its decision two weeks ago.

It also said the party had directed all members of the AP in Agege constituency 1 to support and cast their votes for Auwal Maude, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He enjoined AP members in Agege constituency 2 to also stick to the “earlier arrangements and decision” reached by all the opposition political parties to support and vote for Azeez Adebiyi, and Jimi Agbaje, candidates of the PDP for the state house of assembly and governorship elections.

“I want to enjoin all our members in Agege constituency 1 and 2 to adhere strictly to these changes for the governorship and house of assembly elections,” he said.

“Let me also use this opportunity to clear the issue on the status of Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi. Regarding all the enquiries made so far, he is not our member.

“We are not in any alliance or accord with him contrary to the wild allegation and misinformation by the APC’s spokesperson, Joe Igbokwe. We want to advise the APC not to drag our party into its internal affairs.”
