Paul Ibe, the media adviser to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 25 election, Atiku Abubakar, has denied media reports linking him with the endorsement of an aspirant for the Kogi State governorship election billed for November 11 this year.
Describing the reports as “false and gross fabrication,” he noted that the process of selecting a standard bearer must be determined by the people and not an individual, no matter how powerful.
In a statement he signed, Ibe said Atiku urges all the aspirants to make themselves available before the electors who would choose whom they want as the standard bearer of the PDP in the state.
The statement read, “The attention of the former vice president of Nigeria and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar has been drawn to several media reports insinuating his involvement in the democratic process of electing the gubernatorial flag bearer for the Peoples Democratic Party in the upcoming Kogi State governorship election.
