The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, yesterday denied news making the rounds that he has entered into an alliance with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as false.
Moghalu’s campaign council said this in a statement yesterday.
The statement signed by the spokesman for the campaign council, Jide Akintunde, explained that “the attention of the Young Progressives Party campaign council and the party’s presidential candidate, Professor Kingsley Moghalu, has been drawn to a statement being circulated on the social media that Moghalu has teamed up with PDP presidential candidate, Atiku.
“We would like to state categorically that this information is false. It is fake news attributed to the CUPP spokesman. This fake news is deliberate disinformation, calculated to mislead and demoralise the millions of Moghalu and YPP supporters across the country. But it is doomed to fail.
“We will meet the old brigade of recycled politicians at the polls and we will defeat them with the votes of the people of Nigeria.
“Coming on the heels of the fake news narrative that the election is between two parties, Nigerians should disregard the desperation of the political class and vote for YPP as they have resolved to do and send the visionless politicians to permanent retirement on Saturday.
“Moghalu remains committed to our vision and his view that the APC and the PDP are unable to take Nigeria forward to a better future.”
