Reacting to the media report, the Media Aide in a statement said “the attention of Senator Ibikunle Amosun has been drawn to two news stories trending in the Social Media.
“The first falsely claims that Senator Amosun has been cleared to contest for the Senate. The second claims that Senator Amosun is set to align with a named presidential aspirant for the presidential contest.
“The two news stories are false. They are instances of the brand of politics that responsible Nigerians abhor.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Senator Amosun procured only the forms for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress(APC) and did not attend the screening exercise for Senatorial aspirants because he is not one.
“Also,Senator Amosun is in the race for the presidential ticket of the APC and has no plans to align with any politician in the race.
“The false news stories should be dismissed.”
