The African Action Congress (AAC) has denied backing Eyitayo Jegede, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Ondo governorship election.
In a statement by its National Chairman, Mr Omoyele Sowore, insisted that the AAC will continue to fight for the masses.
Sowore stated that the party would never be a part of any “unholy alliance” whose only objective is to weaponise poverty
The statement reads, “We want to make it categorically clear and loud that as a revolutionary party, we are not and will never be part of an alliance or endorsement whose only objective and goal is to continue to weaponise poverty and keep Nigerians in 21st Century slavery.
“We distance AAC completely from this unholy alliance and also want to use this opportunity to appeal to all members and supporters of our dear party including the general public to disregard the information being peddled around the media space.
“The AAC is a party of oppressed Nigerians (poor and working people) and will continue to fight and stand with the masses.”
