Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has disowned the purported congratulatory message to President Muhammadu Buhari, stressing that the widely circulated message did not emanate from him.
Vigil360 had reported that the President Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday dismissed the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. Atiku and the PDP had dragged INEC, the All Progressives Congress, APC and President
Muhammadu Buhari to court, challenging the declaration of Buhari as the winner of the last presidential election.
Shortly after the tribunal upheld the election of the President, some media outfits had published a congratulatory message purported to be from Fayose. Fayose, an avowed critic of the current administration was swift to disown the message.
Reacting, Fayose dissociated himself from any congratulatory message to President Buhari that might have been issued in his behalf. According to him, he can’t author such statement because he is a believer in PDP and Atiku 2019 project
On his Twitter page, Fayose wrote: “Nigerians should disregard any congratulatory message issued in my name on the outcome of the Presidential Election Judgment.
“My party has indicated its intention to appeal the judgment, and as a party man and believer in the PDP/ATIKU 2019 project, I can’t author such statement.”
