The National Secretary, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr Labaran Maku, has refuted the rumours that his meeting with Asiwaju Tinubu and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, among others, was to float a new political platform ahead of 2023 elections.
Maku, who described the report as ‘fake news’, told newsmen in Wakama, Nasarawa State, on Sunday to disregard such report, stating that “It’s the fakest news of the year promoted by some frightened detractors in Nasarawa state who are scared of the widespread popularity of APGA."
“I haven’t met Asiwaju Tinubu for years and I am in APGA by choice having considered all the other options," he said.
The former governorship candidate of APGA in Nasarawa State said, last week, there was a report on Eyewitness newspaper in Nasarawa state titled “2023: Maku, Umbugadu talks on Consensus Reaches Advanced stage.”
He said, “such report is fake news targeted at scattering my supporters and my well-wishers."
He also said, "Yesterday, another report titled ‘Tinubu, Maku, others in talks to float new party ahead 2023’."
Maku vehemently rebuffed these reports saying, “That I held meeting with Tinubu, others in my country home Wakama, such report is fake news."
He noted that his ‘mandate kidnappers’ in Nasarawa were scared of his bright future.
He said this while calling on APGA supporters to remain firm and support the party to enable the party come victorious in future elections.
He. however, urged his supporters and other well-wishers not to be provoked by the fake news, but to continue to be law-abiding and respect constituted authorities for development to thrive.
