Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
The Presidential aspirant under the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Prince Adewole Adebayo has said that he is the alternative to other known aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that Nigerians have been seeking for.
Adebayo made this claim in a recent television interview.
According to him, the reasons why a number of Nigerians have refused to exercise their voting right over the past elections is because they were searching for an alternative to what has been presented to them.
In his words, “I’m tired of people saying we don’t have alternative if you ask people, why don’t you vote? I don’t have alternative, I can’t vote for this. I can’t vote for that. So, now, we give you the alternative. At the end of it, you will now decide whether the alternative is viable or not. But we have enough time.”
The renowned lawyer therefore, noted that he does not need supporters to raise funds for his form and campaign as he has worked hard over the years and has been getting the reward.
The Presidential hopeful, who recently submitted the his presidential nomination forms at the SDP’s National Secretariat, Abuja said “No, no, no, not at all. I paid for that from my pocket and I paid for so many other things out of my pocket.
“Okay. So and if you look at the taxes, every year in my state, I get the Tax Payer of the Year award. And the governor of my state is of APC, he’s not from my party, but every year, including this year, I got the taxpayer of the year and the NYSC, which is owned by APC led government, gives me Employer of the Year.
“So you can accuse me of not having been advertising myself, but it’s not my job to advise myself. It is the job of the journalists to look for developers of community? If a person is hiring over 1000 workers for the past 15 years, it is the job of the journalists to find the person.
“Okay. If I practice law up to the Supreme Court of Nigeria, I have practiced law in the Supreme Court of the United States, I practiced in New York I practiced law in California, I practiced all over the world, and I am one of the rated arbitrators. I have been a fellow of arbitrators since I was in my twenties.
“All of that are for the people who are in the media to search and criticize. And if you Google my name, you will not have to struggle to know who I am.”
