Maku remains our gov candidate in Nasarawa – APGA
Written by freshadmin2 on March 7, 2019
The All Progressives Grand Alliance has said that former Minister of Information, Mr Labaran Maku, remains its governorship candidate in Nassarawa State.
In a statement by the National Chairman of the party, Dr Victor Oye, made available to our correspondent in Awka, Anambra State, the party described as fake news the stories that Maku had stepped down for the candidate of a particular party in the state.
While urging the public to discountenance the story, APGA said it was strongly in race to win.
The statement read in part,” We wish to state unequivocally that there is no iota of truth whatsoever in the report. It is the handiwork of political detractors, turncoats and desperadoes bent on misleading the people and blackmailing our candidate who has endeared himself to them.
“There was never a time Labaran Maku contemplated stepping down, when in actual fact his popularity has continued to soar, particularly after his endorsement by Eggons Worldwide.
“What happened was that PDP afraid of defeat stirring them in the face forged the headed paper of Labaran Maku with which they issued a fake press statement circulating in the social media that he backed out of the race.
“We have implicit confidence in the capacity of Labaran Maku to defeat both the PDP and APC candidates in the forthcoming governorship election in the state ” Oye stated.
