Despite allegations that former Information Minister Labaran Maku visited All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman Abdullahi Ganduje to celebrate Governor AA Sule’s Appeal Court victory, the PDP chapter in Nasarawa State has distanced itself from Maku.

A former Director General of NOA named Mike Omeri, together with Maku, allegedly paid a visit to Ganduje to congratulate him on Governor Sule’s victory in the Court of Appeal.

In response, the party’s state chapter denied that Maku and Omeri ever attended the rally.

Omeri, Director, Media and Publicity of PDP’s Governorship Campaign Council, issued a statement calling the rumors “the work of mischief makers.”

After reading an online report published by the Punch Newspaper, the Nasarawa State PDP Governorship Campaign Council issued the following statement: “The attention of the Nasarawa State PDP Governorship Campaign Council has been drawn to an online report suggesting that the Director General of the Council and former Minister of Information Labaran Maku (CON) and the Director Media and Publicity and former Director General of NOA, Mike Omeri (OFR) accompanied Governor AA Sule on a visit to the National Chairman of APC, Abdul

Since our Director General and the Director Media and Publicity have not attended any such event or engaged in any activities that align with the misleading narrative propagated by the Punch, we would like to categorically refute and debunk the mischievous media report as a baseless claim.

Mr. Francis Emokela Orogu, PDP State Chairman, has already stated that the party will seek redress against the erroneous judgment of the Court of Appeal at the Supreme Court, but let us restate here that we remain steadfast in our commitment to restoring the electoral mandate of our Governorship candidate, Dr. David Ombugadu.

Misinformation has the potential to harm both people and our political party at large, so we caution the public and the media to double-check their sources before publishing them.

In light of the preceding, we are giving the Punch Newspaper till tomorrow to withdraw the erroneous story and issue an unconditional apology, or we will be taking this matter to court.

Fairness, justice, and the welfare of the people of Nasarawa remain at the center of our campaign. We urge all parties involved, including the media, to maintain the greatest levels of honesty and veracity in their reporting.
