The statement read: “A video being circulated as the purported declaration was mischievously translated with fabricated insertions and interpolations that cannot in spirit and context, establish the misinformation circulated.
“The report was triggered out of curiosity and eagerness by followers and loyalists.
“But a contest for a political position is never a hidden affair or clandestine operation that could be reported as a scoop by a section of the media.”
