Adeoti denied reports making the rounds in a statement released on Wednesday by his media aide, Mr Kayode Agbaje and made available to newsmen in Osogbo.

The rumor circulated in media after Adeoti was seen on Wednesday meeting with leaders of the APC in Osogbo ahead of Thursday’s rerun.

Adeoti noted that although he attended a peace meeting initiated by the Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi in Osogbo, the meeting was not in any way connected to his possible return to the APC.

He urged his supporters and party members to disregard the rumour and assured all that the ADP was united and currently organizing itself to field candidates for all elections in the 2019 general poll.

The statement read in part: “A peace meeting was called on the initiative of Dr Kayode Fayemi and as a politician committed to peace in Osun State, I attended.

“At the said meeting, no one discussed the issue of my possible return to the APC.

“I want to assure all my supporters and ADP members in the state that I still remain in the ADP without the slightest thought of going back to APC or any other political party for that matter.”
