YPP Denies Alliance Between Kingsley Moghalu & PDP/Atiku
The Young Progressives Party (YPP) Campaign Council has denied reports on the social media that the YPP presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu, has teamed up with the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP]’s candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ahead of the presidential/National Assembly elections coming up on Saturday.
Spokesman of the YPP Campaign Council, Mr. Jide Akintunde said that the reported alliance is “fake news”.
YPP made the denial in a press statement issued on Thursday and made available to ElombahNews.
The statement reads:
“The attention of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) Campaign Council and the party’s presidential candidate, Professor Kingsley Moghalu, has been drawn to a statement being circulated on the social media that Moghalu has teamed up with PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“We would like to state categorically that this information is false. It is fake news, attributed to the CUPP spokesman.
“This fake news is deliberate disinformation, calculated to mislead and demoralize the millions of Moghalu and YPP supporters across the country.
“But it is doomed to failure. We will meet the old brigade of recycled politicians at the polls and we will defeat them with the votes of the people of Nigeria.”
The party condemned the fake news narrative that the election is between two parties, saying:
“Coming on the heels of the fake news narrative that the election is between two parties, Nigerians should disregard the desperation of the political class and vote for YPP as they have resolved to do and send the visionless politicians to permanent retirement on Saturday.
“Moghalu remains committed to our vision and his view that the APC and the PDP are unable to take Nigeria forward to a better future.”
