2023 polls: Nurudeen APC Senatorial aspirant joins Accord party

Another All Progressives Congress Fontline Senatorial aspirant in the Oyo Central Senatorial District, Engr Faozy Oladotun Nurudeen at the weekend resigned his membership of the party to join Accord party.

Engr Nurudeen in a statement by statement issued through his campaign organisation, in Ibadan said his resolve to resign his membership of APC was as a result of “undemocratic” principles of the party.

The frontline Oyo Central senatorial aspirant stressed in the statement “this is to inform all and sundry of my membership resignation from the APC. True representation must reflect real democracy”.

 “The past couple of weeks has been filled with decision – taking meetings, to abide by the principles of democracy and stand for what is right for the people and by the people. When we started this journey, it was indeed to bring adequate representation to the good people of Oyo Central senatorial district”, he said.

Engr Nurudeen added, “This, we intended to achieve on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC). During this sojourn, together, we made impact reaching out to our people in all 11 local Government Areas of Oyo Central”. 

“We enjoyed huge support, evident in the numbers that stood with us in solidarity in every local government we visited. The reason was simple;  they believed in the quality of the representation we’ll deliver. However, the primaries of the All Progressives Congress was not truly representational of the choice of the people. This will not deter us, this will not stop us. “

Engr Nurudeen maintained ” Our resolution is simple. We are driven by the quest to deliver good governance to the people regardless of the political party or platform and for this, we have now chosen the Accord party to deliver this task. 

“We’ll continue to fight to bring the quality of governance you truly deserve, in healthcare, education, agricultural revolution, industrialisation, innovative & emerging technologies, job creation and security.”

He stressed, “again, we thank you all for your unflinching support and we encourage you to hold the faith, victory is assured. 

With the spate of  defections rocking Oyo state APC, the  chances of the party at general elections continues to dwindle”.
