The Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship candidate in Ogun, Mr Tony Ojeshina, has stepped down for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Ladi Adebutu, ahead of the March 18 election.
Ojeshina said this at a news conference in Abeokuta on Thursday.
According to him, the synergy between SDP and PDP will usher in a prosperous time for the people, anchored on the lofty vision of making Ogun an industrious model state in Nigeria.
He noted that all the SDP state House of Assembly candidates are still in the race for the March 18 election.
“The political alignment was informed by the need to forge a common front to remove our dear state from the list of misgoverned and impoverished states.
“Through simplified and transparent governance processes, with the sole purpose of improving the quality and standard of living of our people,” he said.
He also said that the alignment was only hinged on the need to work for the victory of PDP, noting that he has not left SDP for the main opposition party.
