As the Kogi state gubernatorial election draws closer, Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has denied endorsing Dino Melaye as his preferred candidate.
He made this known through his Media Aide, Paul Ibe on Tuesday. He, however, said PDP must follow the due process in selecting its candidate for the governorship election in the state.
He said; “We wish to state categorically that such media reports are false and gross fabrication.
“It is, therefore, absurd to suggest that Atiku has a preferred candidate in the primary election to produce the governorship candidate of the PDP in the Kogi State election.
“For the avoidance of any doubts, Atiku Abubakar has no anointed candidate in the Kogi State primary election.”
