Director-General of the Nasarawa State PDP Governorship Campaign Council, Labaran Maku and the Director Media and Publicity of the council, Mike Omeri, have refuted the claim that they celebrated the judgement of the Court of Appeal, which upturned the removal of Governor Abdullahi Sule, on Thursday.
A national daily (not DailyTrust) had reported that the duo accompanied Governor Sule on a visit to the National Chairman of APC, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, to celebrate the verdict.
However, a statement signed by Omeri, described the report as a baseless claim.
“We would like to categorically refute and debunk the mischievous media report as a baseless claim, as our Director General and the Director Media and Publicity have not participated in any such event, nor have they engaged in activities that align with the misleading narrative propagated by the report.
“Let us restate here that we remain steadfast in our commitment to restoring the electoral mandate of our Governorship candidate, Dr. David Ombugadu as earlier announced by the PDP State Chairman, Mr. Francis Emokela Orogu that the party will seek redress against the erroneous judgment of the Court of Appeal at the Supreme Court.
“We therefore urge the public and media organizations to exercise caution and verify information before disseminating it, as the spread of misinformation undermines the democratic process and can have severe consequences for individuals and our political party,” the statement read in part.
