The All Progressives Congress has on Sunday described the news making the rounds about Governor Yahaya Bello’s tactical withdrawal of support for the party’s Presidential flag bearer, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu as false and irresponsible.
In a press release signed on Sunday by the party’s National Publicity Secretary Barr. Felix Morka, he added that the story was maliciously false and a figment of the imagination of it’s author and sponsors.
He said “Our attention has been drawn to a front page report in Sunday Tribune of today, January 22, 2023, that the Governor of Kogi State and member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, His Excellency, Yahaya Bello, has “tactically” withdrawn support for our Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over imagined political permutations on the Kogi State Governorship election scheduled for November”.
The publicity stressed that Governor Yahaya Bello who serves as the National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, is a solid, resourceful and committed campaigner for our Party’s Candidate, leading a massively successful outreach to youth voters across the country.
He pointed out that the Fake News, ostensibly intended to float an imagined rift between Governor Yahaya Bello and Honourable James Faleke, Secretary of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, is the desperate and disgraceful conjecture of opposition elements unsettled by the Party’s giant campaign strides.
Bar Morka reiterated that both loyal Party men remained unquestionably committed and working tirelessly for the resounding victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in next month’s presidential election while he urged Party compatriots and all Nigerians to disregard this fake news.
