Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, has described a news story making the rounds that the governor is set to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for ADC as a concocted falsehood.

A statement by Mr. Adisa says contrary to the fake news report published by a newspaper medium, Governor Makinde has no plan to join any other party.

The statement states that Governor Makinde has remained a strong pillar of the party for many years and is already leading the mission for its resurgence in the South-West.

He stated that the report in question raised all the red flags of fake news, as it was based on unverifiable claims from an unnamed source, adding that if the journalist and the editors of the medium had done due diligence, such falsehood would not have found its way into the public sphere.

Mr. Adisa aide added that the attempt to launch the concocted story shortly after some media outfits had tried to exaggerate the governor’s exit from a WhatsApp platform that purportedly belongs to the PDP is negatively ingenious.

The statement maintained that apart from the governor not contemplating joining ADC or any other party for that matter, he would also not be distracted by the ridiculous lies being circulated by the enemies within and without.
