He however urged the state party leadership and the electoral body, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to crush the candidacy of AMA and recognize him as the party flagbearer for the election scheduled to hold next year.

He said, “AMA is and remains a member of the opposition party, the PDP. He had contested an election three consecutive times into the Lagos state House of Assembly after which he left the party for the APC where he contested the May 27, 2022 primary election using an invalid APC membership.

Going further, he alleged that AMA’s membership of the PDP remains intact as he failed to resign from the PDP.”

Supporting his claims further, Onamade said a request for verification dated May 13, 2022 was made on the Ward Chairman of the PDP in Ikorodu constituency to ascertain the membership status of AMA.

According to him, his suspicion was confirmed as in the response dated May 16 and 17, 2022 from the leadership of the party confirmed AMA as a member of the party.
