Some members of the Inter-Party Advisory Council, Ogun State chapter, on Sunday disagreed with other members of the council who gave the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun, an ultimatum to either produce his National Youth Service Corps discharge certificate or face a legal battle.

The dissident parties, which included the Green Party of Nigeria, Unity Party of Nigeria, Democratic Peoples Party, Nigeria Interest Party, Labour Party and National Interest Party, stated this in a statement they jointly signed in Abeokuta.

They urged the general public to disregard the ultimatum given by the IPAC in the state, saying they were not a party to it.

The state Chairman of IPAC, Arabambi Abayomi, had said there were discrepancies in the qualifications Abiodun submitted to contest the 2019 governorship election when compared to the ones he submitted to contest a senatorial seat in 2015.

He, therefore, issued a 42-hour ultimatum to Abiodun on behalf of IPAC to clear the air on the controversy or risk a disqualification suit from the council.

But the dissident parties in IPAC said they had unanimously dissociated themselves from the said ultimatum.

They claimed that they were never part of the meeting where the idea of ultimatum was conceived.
