A leading All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, has denied endorsing a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Tinubu said the text message being circulated at the Eagles Square, the venue of APC Special Convention, was false.
He noted that the text messages were the handiwork of shameless, desperate, and misguided individuals.
Tinubu’s denial was contained in a statement signed by his Media Office, and posted on his verified Twitter handle.
The message reads: “We have been informed of text messages aimed at APC delegates purportedly from Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, other candidates and party officials making various false claims about Asiwaju and the primary process.
“We have been informed of a text message going around APC delegates at Eagles Square in Abuja purportedly from Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu claiming that with his imminent victory at the APC presidential primary and emergence as the party’s presidential candidate, the APC leader has now decided on a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
“This is nothing but a lie, it has no basis whatsoever.
“We enjoin the distinguished delegates to ignore this completely.
“The fake text message is a ploy by some undemocratic elements to confuse and hoodwink delegates sensing that Asiwaju Tinubu is comfortably coasting home to victory.
“There is no truth whatsoever in any of these messages. They are lies perpetrated by shameless, desperate and misguided individuals and should be ignored as such.”
