The Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) during the 2019 general elections, Kingsley Moghalu, has spoken on the reports of defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Moghalu described the report of him planning to join APC as false and mischievous.
The former presidential candidate who took to his Twitter account noted that the reeport is misleading.
Moghalu noted that even though he has resigned his membership of YPP, he is yet to decide which party to join.
The tweet reads: “This headline, and the claim on which the report is based, is false, mischievous, and tendentious.”
“In late 2019 I resigned my membership of the Young Progressives Party, the party platform on which I was a presidential candidate in 2019, but I did not subsequently join, and have not joined, any other political party.”
“I am therefore NOT a member of ANY political party in Nigeria today.”
“The article by Elombah News is doubly mischievous because, despite my denying this false claim when the online news outlet contacted me, Elombah News nevertheless went ahead to publish the story with this mischievous and misleading headline with no evidence to back it up, while burying my comment debunking the false claim deep inside its story. This is irresponsible journalism.”
“I ask the public to disregard this fake news report, and to be guided by this clarification.”
