Ogun State chapter of the Accord Party (AP) has declared that Doyin Okupe, a former presidential spokesman, is not her member.
AP said Okupe had yet to formally join the party.
Prince Adeyemi Alli, state chairman, spoke at a meeting with the party state executives in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State on Friday.
Okupe had announced that he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Accord Party.
Reacting, Alli said: “The attention of the party has been drawn to persons claiming to align with the Accord Party known as the ‘Ogun Integrity Group’ allegedly belonging to Okupe.
“While we are open to having more people join us in propagating our vision, due process has to be followed.
“We are not stopping anyone from joining Accord Party so far such persons or groups meet our conditions of membership.
“As we head into the 2019 general elections, one thing that endears us to the electorate is the organisation within the party and the peace we enjoy among ourselves.
“The Accord people remain united and are working hard towards electoral success in 2019 for the benefit of every Nigerian.”
The chairman said party officials nationwide had been canvassing for support and mobilising resources for the party across all political zones in the country ahead of the 2019 elections.
