The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Prince Uche Secondus has debunked reports concerning the purported nomination of Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, as the presidential candidate of the party.
Secondus while briefing newsmen in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital after a rally of the party said the report was false.
He said even though he was not in attendance at the Gombe meeting, no such decision was taken by PDP governors and other party leaders in attendance.
According to him, the report making the rounds was the All Progressives Congress, APC, propaganda.
On why himself and Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike did not attend the Gombe meeting where the alleged endorsement was sealed, Secondus said he was on medical treatment and that it was not only the Rivers governor that was absent.
“Though I was not in Gombe meeting, it was false, don’t listen to APC false propaganda.
“There was no such nomination. I was not in attendance because I went for medicals, I am a human being; most governors were absent not only my governor Wike,” Secondus told newsmen.
