The defection of the African Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate for Lagos State in 2019, to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party would not diminish the fortunes of the party in 2023.
In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of ADP, Mr Adelaja Adeoye which was made available to CAPITAL POST in Abuja on Tuesday, he said anybody has a right to join any political party, noting that politics is a game of interest.
“As we all know, politics is a game of interest, it is a free join and free exit.
“No person or individual can be conditioned to stay in a party against their wishes, therefore, his exit does not and cannot tamper with the formidable structure of our great party in Lagos State.
“ADP has been in existence in all the 20 local goverments and 37 LCDAs in Lagos as a formidable political party, before Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi (BOG) joined in 2018.
“ADP as a party of real democrats, we accepts all interested members of the public between the age 18 and above.
“If ADP is not a formidable party, it wont pass INEC screening that reduced political parties in Nigeria.
“Our party met all the criteria based on merit and its formidable strength.
According to the statement, the race for 2023 political officers does beyond APC and PDP, revealing that prominent citizens across the country are already showing interest in the party.
The party said:
“At the right time, we will unveil to all Nigerians that our party is the real credible alternative that will win massively in the next elections.
“As a party of democrats, we can only wish him well in his sojourn in his new party, as non of our members followed him to his new party.
“We can assure Lahosians that our party ADP, will present a more popular candidate in Lagos 2023 for governorship and will win”, the statement concluded.
