The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has debunked the rumour making the rounds over nomination and selection of some executive members of the party.
In a statement made available to Western Post on Monday, the director of Media and Publicity of the party in the state, Zadok Akintoye said the rumour was made public by some online media organizations, which he said such act could be taken to be highly unprofessional on the part of the organisations without verification from the appropriate quarters
The statement said. “It has come to our attention that several online news media have carried untrue stories credited to some aspirants seeking to serve as members of the State Executive Council of the party claiming that they have been voted and elected into those offices”
“We would like to inform the general public that the Ondo state chapter of the PDP is yet to conduct its congresses to elected party officials across the wards, local governments and at the state level. Such false allusions should be disregarded and considered as untrue and misleading”
He said further that While the party acknowledges the right of all individual members of the party to seek to be elected to lead, we must, however, advise all aspirants into state offices to desist from granting misleading statements to the press.
According to him “For the record, no single member of the party has been elected into any post at the ward, local government and state level. Our party congresses hold between March and April 2020.”
