GOVERNOR Seyi Makinde is not leaving Peoples Democratic Party – PDP, for African Democratic Congress – ADC, or any other party, the Oyo state Governor’s aide has said.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Taiwo Adisa said in a statement issued in Ibadan on Monday, in an apparent response to rumours making the rounds that the governor is set to dump PDP.
Adisa, on behalf of the Governor, described the report as “a concocted falsehood from purveyors of fake news, who are bent on maligning Makinde at all cost.”
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor maintained that Makinde had no plan to join any other party.
According to him, the governor has remained a strong pillar of PDP for many years and was already leading the mission for its resurgence in the South-West zone.
Adisa said that the report raised all the red flags of fake news, as it was based on unverifiable claims from an unnamed source. He added that if the writers of the report and the editors of the media through which it was reported had done due diligence, such falsehood would not have found its way into the public sphere.
“The reporter in question had access to the media unit of the governor, but he chose to fly with the falsehood.” Adisa maintained that apart from the governor not contemplating joining ADC or any other party for that matter, he would also not be distracted by the ridiculous lies being circulated by the enemies within and without.
