The Kayode Fayemi Campaign Office has refuted a message circulating on social media that the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer has picked Alhaja Habibat Adubiaro as his running mate.
A statement signed on Tuesday on behalf of the organisation by Mr. Wole Olujobi described the story as not only false but misleading.
It urged members of the public not to believe any report or statement that does not emanate from the appropriate party organs.
The statement reads: “The attention of the JKF Campaign Office has been drawn to a story that has gone viral on the social media that the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Kayode Fayemi, has picked Hajia Habibat Adubiaro as the deputy governorship candidate of the party in the July 14 governorship election.
“This report is not only false, but misleading.
“We have since discovered that the story emanated from the same source that concocted a story last week purporting that Dr Fayemi planned to create cattle colonies across the state.
“The general public is hereby notified that APC has a formal way of conducting its affairs in strict compliance with the party’s rules and regulations.
“At the appropriate time the party would formally announce the deputy governorship candidate.
“We therefore urge members of the public to stop taking seriously any announcement that does not emanate from appropriate party organs.”
