As the candidate of the ADC in Ogun, Biyi Otegbeye, flagged off his campaign at the Ake Palace Square, Amosun stormed the venue at 1:49pm to the chagrin of many at the event.

Amosun had earlier said he would support the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, for the presidency but would support Otegbeye for governor.

Though the former governor was absent when Tinubu visited Abeokuta last week Wednesday, he is, however, the cynosure of all eyes at the ADC rally today

ADC deputy governorship candidate defects to PDP to support Makinde.


Emmanuel Oyewole, the running-mate to the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) for the 2023 election in Oyo State, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


Mr Oyewole announced his defection to PDP on Friday in Ibadan.

Dr Ganiyu Ajadi is the governorship candidate of ADC for the election.

Mr Oyewole told reporters at the Nigerian Union of Journalists’ (NUJ) Conference Hall that he had defected to PDP to support the re-election bid of Governor Seyi Makinde.

“I and my followers, spread across the state, have considered this decision and I can say with all sense of responsibility that I have taken this decision in the interest of Oyo State.

“Truth be told, going by the good governance and masterful administration of Gov. Seyi Makinde, the 2023 governorship election in the state should have only one clear contender.

“And that is the incumbent governor, because as they say, one good ‘term’ deserves another,” he said.

Mr Oyewole said the administration of Mr Makinde was gradually transforming Oyo State to the dream state of residents.

According to him, the different success stories of the Makinde administration in human capacity development, infrastructure development, economic expansion are praise-worthy.

Mr Oyewole said Mr Makinde had also done well in the areas of education, security of lives and properties and health care delivery .

“As loyal and patriotic indigenes of Oyo State, I and the teeming members of the ADC who had earlier signed to my aspiration as ADC deputy governorship candidate, we want these positive developments to continue.

“And we believe that only Gov. Makinde can make this possible,” Mr Oyewole added.


Moghalu faults Buhari for conferring Award on ex-CJN, Tanko.


Former African Democratic Party (ADC) presidential aspirant, Kingsley Moghalu, has faulted President Muhammadu Buhari for conferring the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON) on the immediate past Chief Justices of Nigeria, CJN, Ibrahim Tanko.

Buhari had during the swearing-in of Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as Acting Chief Judge of Nigeria at the State House, conferred the second-highest national honour that can be bestowed on any Nigerian national on Tanko.

He said the award was being conferred on the jurist for the good work he did while at the saddle as CJN.

But reacting, Moghalu on his Twitter page, said Tanko’s tenure was spectacularly undistinguished.

“I’m not exactly certain what qualifies our recently retired Chief Justice of Nigeria Tanko Muhammad for the very high national Honour of GCON.

“The man retired under a cloud. His tenure was spectacularly undistinguished. Nigeria’s judiciary is corrupt and needs to be cleaned up.”

Kingsley Moghalu picks up ADC presidential form.


A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, Professor Kingsley Moghalu on Tuesday picked up the presidential expression of interest and nomination form of the African Democratic Congress in Abuja.

“I purchased the form myself, opting against the usual fake purchases on behalf of aspirants by shadowy groups,” Moghalu said in a post on Twitter.

“I did so because Nigerians are worthy of this sacrifice.”




Speaking shortly after picking up the form, Moghalu promised to invest heavily in the education sector by allocating, to the sector, 20 percent of the nation’s budget.

According to him, investing in education can help curb the challenges of insecurity and youth unemployment in the country.

He vowed that the incessant strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities will be confined to history once he emerges as President.

He also added that the current inflation rate in the country will be tackled by his administration in order to create a conducive business environment




ADC tells INEC, Says Nigeria’s democracy is distress

…we will address your concerns

The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Ralphs Okey Nwosu, has expressed dissatisfaction with the conduct of the 2019 general elections and the recent governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He complained that their outcomes fell short of public expectation. He is also accusing the Electoral Commission of complicity with the leading political parties and incumbents to deprive smaller parties of fair representation.

Nwosu spoke on Wednesday at a meeting of members the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) with INEC officials, who were on a mandatory verification exercise at the ADC national secretariat in Abuja.

The ADC Chairman, saying he was angry with conduct of the recent elections, called on INEC leadership to “search their conscience” on whether the Commission has delivered on its mandate to the expectation and satisfaction of voters

He pointed out that INEC “is one of the well-funded agencies in Nigeria. The government is usually well supported by the National Assembly to give priority to INEC’s financial and other needs. In addition, foreign governments and NGOs support the body with election management protocols, capacity building and human development.

“All these are to ensure best outcome for INEC’s works. But rather than good outcomes, I want the men and women running INEC to search their conscience. Unfortunately, the entire Nigerian democratic ecosystem looks more like a criminal enterprise.”

The ADC boss argued that in a more reliable election outcome, his party, which he claimed was one of the most popular political party platforms in Nigeria, should have “produced a minimum of three governors, 12 senators and 72 House of Representatives members, and 178 members of Houses of Assembly of various states.”

“Rather than this scenario, the current election conduct system aided the parties in power, cash-and-carry politicians and war lords, and the incumbent governments to rub our candidates and our model party. But we remain undaunted.

“Our House of Representatives members and their state assembly counterparts remain the authentic voice of Nigerians in representing their constituencies and our great party. They will continue to project the alternative voice without fear. Nigerians know that they are a part of the few that truly are deserving of their mandates,” he said.

Nwosu reminded his visitors that the outcome of recent elections in the country has created a serious backlash.

“I wish to put it clearly, our country Nigeria is in great danger. The systems are corrupted and the country is hemorrhaging. The quality of leadership is, to say the least poor; institutions have become compromised and undermined. State agencies are in ruins and infrastructures are in a complete decadent state,” he complained to the Commission.

“I hate to and will not classify security. Unemployment is at the highest, and the country has become the poverty capital of the world under these imposed leadership of APC at the centre and some other parties in the states.

“The condition of our country is troubling. If the systems and leadership in place have reduced our country and sunk its current population of 200 million so low, I doubt if we shall have a country in 20 years when the population of the country becomes 400 million. It will cause a global rupture.

Responding, ADC presidential candidate in the 2019 poll and former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadia Mailafia, lamented the impunity and killings that have dogged the election process.

He charged the Electoral Commission and its chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, whom he said was a classmate at university, to ensure a clean democratic process for the country.

The INEC verification team led by an Assistant Director in the Commission, Nkechi Abu, responded to the complaints by assuring the party delegates that their concerns will be looked into and addressed by INEC leadership.
