The KOWA Party and the Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA) have denied involvement in the endorsement of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-olu by some opposition parties for 2019 governorship election in Lagos State.

45 political parties under the aegis of Coalition of Progressives Political Parties in Lagos State (CP3) had on Friday allegedly entered a coalition to endorse  Sanwo-Olu for the 2019 election.

Chairman of CP3, Aderemi Fatukasi said that the coalition was against the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State.

KOWA Party and PPA were listed as members of CP3, that endorsed the APC candidate.

Reacting to the development, Abhulimen Marvins, Public Relations Officer, KOWA Party in the state,  said the party never had a discussion or entered into any coalition to support Sanwo-Olu.

“It has come to our notice that the APC and its agents are claiming that KOWA Party is in an alliance with 44 other political parties in Lagos state endorsing their candidate for the gubernatorial elections in Lagos state.

“We want to use this medium to state categorically that KOWA Party in Lagos state has never had any discussion with the APC in Lagos to endorse its candidate for the elections.

“KOWA Party in Lagos state is focused on its candidates for Legislative Offices at the federal and state levels.

“We implore all our members, supporters and well-wishers in Lagos state and beyond to disregard all such rumors and keep faith with KOWA Party as we go into the 2019 elections.

“We promise to deliver candidates that would make a positive difference in the political space in the overall interest of the nation ” Marvin said.
