Anambra State gubernatorial aspirant for the 2017 election and National Auditor of All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Dr George Moghalu, has berated politicians who are behind rumours of his dropping out from the race.
He said the stories are fake and should not only be ignored but treated with disdain.
A statement signed by the Deputy -Director General of Chief (Dr.) George Moghalu Campaign Organisation, J.C.Okeke, Moghalu said the fake story is a calculated attempt by politicians of questionable character to obtain through misinformation, lies and cheap blackmail what they cannot achieve at the ballot box.
The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to an online media a report purporting that Chief (Dr.) George N. Moghalu has dropped out of the race for the nomination of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming governorship elections in Anambra state.
“Chief (Dr.) George N. Moghalu is in the race for Governor because he is very competent and has the experience, temperament and public record to lead Anambra State into a future free of corruption, ineptitude and treachery. As such, he has no intention of quitting the race under any circumstances and for anybody. ”
“Anambra State has grown weary of character deficient politicians who choose the path of falsity, perfidy and brigandage in pursuit of personal political objectives. ” Okeke stated
He warned the peddlers of the fake news to desist from exposing their ineptitude and mediocrity and urged Anambarians to keep faith with Moghalu he is set to put things right in the state.
He also urged the electorates to go to the polls and allow the democratic will of the people be expressed through the ballot box.
