The Nation quoted the Chairman of Accord in the State, Alh. Bashir Lawal, as saying:
“Accord in Oyo State was not given any money by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the last election.
“We joined Accord in 2010 and the National Secretariat never gave our chapter any money. We didn’t receive money to campaign for anybody in Accord as a party.
“The N100 million issue has to do with the national secretariat. But I am speaking for the Oyo State chapter.”
Alhaji Lawal said that the chapter and its leaders could not have campaigned for former President Goodluck Jonathan because PDP is different from Accord.”
