The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has described as “fake”, news that he had formed an alliance with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Moghalu, in a statement on Thursday by the spokesman of his campaign council, Jide Akintunde, attributed the news to the spokesperson of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).
He said, “The attention of the Young Progressives Party 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 fake 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 demoralise 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.
“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.
“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.”
