One of the governorship aspirant vying for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket, Dr. Bolufemi Olarotimi, has debunked rumours making rounds that he has withdrawn from the race.
In a statement signed by Omonisaye Bank-Andrew, Director, Media and Publicity Bolu 2023 Campaign Organization, the aspirant said the rumours are “lies from the pit of hell.”
Bolufemi insisted that he is in the race to win.
“It has come to the notice of Dr. Bolufemi Olarotimi Olanrewaju Campaign Organization that rumour mongers and deceitful characters have started peddling the unfounded allegations that our hardworking, highly versatile and industrious and frontline aspirant has stepped down from the forthcoming PDP primary.
“We want to put it on record that this information is highly malicious, falsehood ochestratrated by never do wells and an attempt to hijack the party once again for primodial gains.
“Dr. Bolufemi have been daily fraternizing and lobbying delegates for the election. Why will he now throw in the towel when he is almost coasting to victory? Your guess is as good as mine.
“It is imperative to let our teeming supporters and party loyalists understand the fact that our political enemies are at work. They won’t stop at nothing to cash out when the need arises but Bolu for Kogi State Governor has come to stay. Of course, we are in the race to win and not just to compete.
“As a consequence of the above, we implore our distinguished delegates to disregard the lies being disseminated by falsehood peddlers,” the statement said.
Bank-Andrew urged PDP delegates to vote massively for Dr. Bolu, who is on a mission to salvage the worrisome situation in Kogi.
