The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disowned the statement attributed to its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi that the cause of the current fuel scarcity is because the economy has improved so much that more Nigerians are buying cars, while threatening legal action against the alleged originator.

A statement signed by the Assistant Director, Publicity
All Progressives Congress, EDEGBE ODEMWINGIE, said that at no time did Mallam Abdullahi make such statement or even implied it.

“The statement was a pure fabrication by one Lere Olayinka, a media aide to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, who made the alleged tweet on December 19, 2017, without citing any source and was rightly ignored by right thinking people.

“Our Party immediately issued a disclaimer, warning the general public to be wary of the said Olayinka for being notorious for peddling fake news,” it said.

The party said that they have been compelled to issue this disclaimer yet again as there appears to be a deliberate ploy to soil the reputation of Mallam Abdullahi through the spread of this fiction.

“We also wish to note that Mallam Abdullahi has commenced legal action against Mr Olayinka as his lawyers have written to him to disclaim the said statement or be sued for damages.

“We once again appeal to the media to corroborate information attributed to us from our official media channels,” it concluded.
