Buhari’s Aide, Ojudu Speaks On Plan to Dump APC
The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojudu, has debunked the report of his alleged plan to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) for another political party.
He said that he would not leave APC for another political party to achieve his political aspirations.
Ojudu told NAN on Monday in Abuja that such a plan only existed in the imaginations of idle politicians and rumour merchants.
“The purpose of the insinuation is to distract us from serious task of engaging stakeholders strategically in the bid to rescuing Ekiti State from political rascals.
“We are not going to submit to such misleading antics. Rather, we will accelerate efforts in achieving our goals.
“The task before us is the rebirth of Ekiti, no amount of distractions from whatever quarters will stop our march to put back Ekiti where it truly belongs.
“Everyone knows that in the last couple of years, this state has become a shadow of what the world used to know it for and returning it to where it belongs is long overdue.
“Without any shred of doubt, I am submitting myself for the governorship primary under the platform of the APC to actualising our collective agenda for a born again Ekiti.
“We are not going to any political party whether Alliance for Democracy (AD) or any other party.
“This rumour does not even deserve any response, but for those who may not know Babafemi Ojudu well enough.
“I suspect many of such deliberate misinformation is on the way. After all, we are in the age of fake and malicious news,” he said.
“The man with the much needed ideas to make Ekiti a better state will be in the race on the platform of the APC and will win the race by God’s grace,” he said.
