The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State says a former Deputy clerk of the National Assembly, Chief Olayide Adelami is not a member of the party.
Adelami is one of the governorship Aspirants on the platform of the party planning to unseat Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
Owo local government chairman of APC, Sydney Ogunleye said there was no time Adelami registered or participated as a member of the APC.
Ogunleye spoke at a meeting of the party with political appointees held in Owo.
According to him, political careers are not started with governorship ambition without recourse to the party or registered as a member.
His words, “Adelami is not a member of our party. We don’t know him. He didn’t register as a member of the APC in this town.”.
He condemned the violence activities of Adelami who he said has been sponsoring the thugs to torment troubles in the state.
He said it was worrisome that some young men from the Adelami would attempt to attack the convoy of the Governor when he came to bury his Uncle in Owo last Friday.
Sydney assured that the party will provide a level playing ground for all aspirants, who are registered members of the party, seeking the ticket at the primary .
The party chairman said the people are agitating for the return of Governor Akeredolu and the APC because of his numerous achievement which cut across the state.
