The Kwara State Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Folaranmi Aro, has described the story of the alleged certificate forgery of the governorship candidate of the party, Mr. Abdulrahman Abdulrazak, is untrue.
He made the remark while explaining the reasons the party called off its advertised press conference. He noted that the press conference was postponed because members of the state campaign committee were yet to conclude their meeting.
He said, “The state committee on the visit of President Buhari met this morning, but we could not conclude our meeting” he said.
Also, Abdulrazak’s media aide, Ajakaye, described the news story as untrue, adding that his principal submitted genuine documents to INEC.
He said, “The media may note that Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq was prequalified and indeed contested elections in 2011 and 2015 with the same genuine WAEC results.
“Raising fake news about his certificate now is another lame attempt by the discredited political dynasty clutching at straws in the face of imminent defeat in the elections.”
Warning the media to be wary of publishing false news report, Ajakaye maintained, “We however add that the candidate reserves the right to press charges against anyone who deliberately and mischievously peddles lies against him without any credible evidence.”
