The Deputy Director of the fundraising committee of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Tein Jack-Rich, has come out to clear the air that he still remains with the party and its flag bearer, Bola Tinubu.
This is as he debunks rumours about his exit from the party saying the report is nothing but “patent falsehood.”
reports that the APC chieftain in a statement signed by his Media Assistant, Obinna Simon said the rumours are nothing short of patent falsehood and a desperate attempt to cause distraction.
According to him, He still remains with Tinubu and the rumour of his defection is being hatched by people who do not mean well for Nigeria.
The statement explained that Jack-Rich, honouring a birthday invitation of a dear friend and Niger delta brother, Timi Frank while vacationing with his family and other PDP and APC loyalists at the occasion was not a political gathering and had nothing to do with politics.
Simon noted, “It is a pity that people will just use their smartphones from the comfort of their homes to concort unfounded tissue of lies just for a mess of portage.
“Fake news and false information is a challenge that is threatening our country and stiffer sanctions must be meted to these enemies of our country whose stock-in-trade is to fan the embers of disharmony and disunity.
“I dare ask, when did it become an offence for people to identify with their friends?”
He also urged members of APC worldwide to continue working assiduously to secure victory for the party in the next month’s election, expressing optimism that APC will sing the song of victory at the end of the election.
