Tunji-Ojo distances self from purported appointment as APC leader in Ondo

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo has described the purported claim that he has been appointed as the political leader in Ondo State by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as baseless and fictitious.

The Minister denied the claim in a Statement issued by Alao Babatunde, Special Adviser to the Minister of Interior on Media and Publicity on Wednesday.

According to him: ” He said 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, (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.”

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 advised aspirants to embrace the spirit of love and sportsmanship.

He described Tinubu 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.

“We urge the public to disregard the misinformation contained in the viral news article and to always rely on credible sources for accurate information,” he stated
