BREAKING: Lawan Adviser On Media Reveals Senate President Decision On Defection To PDP

Published

on

The viral video purporting his principal’s defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is phony, according to Ola Awoniyi, the Senate President’s Special Adviser (Media).

In a statement by Awoniyi debunked the alleged video, claiming that the original video clip, which was mischievously edited to 26 seconds from a 3 minutes 30 seconds clip of Senator Muhammad Adamu Ailero of Kebbi State informing his colleagues at plenary of his defection from the APC to the PDP over issues in the state chapter of the APC, was mischievously edited to 26 seconds.

“It was the video clip of the Senate President reading out Senator Aliero’s letter that was doctored to give the wrong impression that Lawan has renounced his membership of APC,” Awoniyi said.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Senator Ahmad Lawan is a committed member of the APC and has no reason whatsoever to renounce his membership of the party.

“Members of the public are hereby enjoined to discountenance the video in reference as it is the handiwork of mischief makers.

Meanwhile, in the wake of a supremacy battle over the Yobe North Senatorial seat, a former lawmaker of the PDP, representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has advised the current holder of the seat, Lawan, to step aside from the senate seat.

Sanni, in a statement via his verified Twitter handle, Friday, said Lawan has attained his peak in his legislative career, adding that the Senate President should step aside for a young man.

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, to warn his supporters against spreading false information.

Speaking on behalf of Asiwaju, Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Communications for the Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO), claimed that Obi’s supporters have been spreading false information to the public in an effort to harm the APC candidate.

Recall that a report emerged online a few days ago, that the Ghanian President, Nana Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Asiwaju, asking him to step down and support Peter Obi and take care of his health.

The President had via his official Twitter handle, debunked the report, calling it fake news, stating that it is a product of deliberate mischief with the intent to deceive the public.

Reacting, the TCO media Director asked Obi to disavow his supporters who are employing fake news against the former Lagos State Governor.

“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” Onanuga stated.
