Interior Minister Tunji-Ojo Debunks Appointment As Ondo APC Leader, Calls Claim Baseless, Fictitious

Interior Minister Tunji-Ojo has urged the public to disregard the false article claiming his appointment as Ondo APC leader.

The Interior Minister, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has distanced himself from his purported appointment as the leader of All Progressives Congress in Ondo State.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Alao Babatunde, the minister rubbished the claim that he was appointed as leader of the party in his home state.

“It has come to our attention that a news article circulating on Blueprint newspaper, titled: ‘Tinubu appoints interior minister political leader in Ondo’, claiming that the Minister of Interior, Hon. (Dr) Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has been appointed as the political leader in Ondo state by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We would like to categorically state that this report is entirely baseless and fictitious.

“The Minister of Interior, Hon. Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, completely disassociates and distances himself from the purported appointment, as it holds no truth whatsoever. There has been no meeting held with all the local government APC chairmen and leaders in Abuja, as alleged in the article.

“While the Minister is aware that the party’s governorship primary election is days away, he has advised aspirants to embrace the spirit of love and sportsmanship.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR), as the father of the nation and as the leader of the party, is a democrat, whose interest is always to promote unity and peace and would not be involved in any action that will undermine that.”

He urged the public to disregard the misinformation contained in the viral news article and to always rely on credible sources for accurate information.
