The statement that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was seeking the postponement of the forthcoming elections was blatantly false and reckless and bears no iota of credibility.
Felix Morka, the APC spokesperson, made this known while reacting to the statement made by Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP Presidential Campaign Council spokesperson.
Kola said, “The Atiku/Okowa Campaign counsels Tinubu to face the reality of his looming defeat and stop the shenanigans of seeking to introduce dangerous forms of contraption into our polity.”
Reacting to this, Felix said, “The report is blatantly false and reckless and bears no iota of credibility. Beyond its loud headline, the report offers no substantive justifying content aside from its intended purpose of misleading and causing needless anxiety and speculations regarding the upcoming elections.
“Our general election is a matter of extreme national importance bordering on national security and corporate integrity of our country. It is not and should not become a matter for idle, rash, or insensitive speculation by the media or any institution for that matter.
“It bears reiterating that the underlying report is fake news.
“On record, under President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership, our Party continues to wage the most extensive and vibrant campaign in the history of our nascent democracy seeking to elect our visionary Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima and our Party’s governorship, national and state legislative flag bearers into office.
“This is in direct contrast to the lackluster and incoherent campaign of the opposition parties that have placed nothing before the electorate except their vile merchandise of lies, innuendoes, and hate propaganda against the APC.”
