National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Monday distanced himself from reactions attributed to him on the just concluded governorship election in Edo State.

A statement attributed to Tinubu had surfaced on social media which quoted him as saying APC’s defeat was an indication that members of the party are not gods.

He was, however, quoted as saying the extent the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), went in ensuring their victory was an indication that APC was closed to being gods.

However, Tinubu dismissed the statement, stressing that such was not from him.

Tinubu’s spokesman Tunde Rahman confirmed this in a press release.

Rahman, who described the statement as fake, said the APC National Leader would make an extended statement at the right time.

According to Rahman: “Please disregard any post to the effect that His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has spoken on the Edo elections. The said statement is a fake one. It’s the antics of social media merchants of fake and unsubstantiated statements.

“It did not come from Asiwaju. Those who know Asiwaju would recall that it’s not in his character to rush to issue statements. At the appropriate time, His Excellency Asiwaju will speak on the Edo election. Thank you.”

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
