The National Executive Committee of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) has rejected Chief Olusola Oke as the governorship candidate of the party for the November 26, 2016 Ondo State governorship election.
The NEC said it was not aware of Oke’s candidature.
According to a communique issued on Friday in Akure after a meeting, and made available to newsmen by the AD National Organising Secretary, Mr. Ibrahim Abdollah, the party’s National Working Committee and Board of Trustees were also not carried along in arriving at the choice of Oke.
Deputy National Chairman, Malam Musa Loyi presided over the meeting, which was attended by all the state chairmen and some national officers.
The communique said: “Chief Olusola Oke is hereby not adopted as the flag bearer of AD in the Nov. 26 gubernatorial election.”
The communique also passed a vote of no confidence on the National Chairman of the party, Chief Joseph Avazi; National Secretary, Mr Akin Fasogbon; National Auditor, Mr. Ismaeel Ayodele and South West Zonal Chairman, Chief Tayo Onayemi.
It said the officers’ actions, in adopting Oke as candidate, contradicted the party’s constitution, adding that they had no power to usurp that of the party’s NEC.
The communique directed the national chairman and secretary to convene a NEC meeting in Abuja within 21 days, saying failure to do this would lead to punitive measures against them.
