Claim: Trending news on social media, and offline claims that there are fears in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday that the PDP may have sold out to the APC.
Some members of the PDP who were not happy with the development said there had been an agreement between Fayemi and Fayose that PDP should step down for APC and that they should jointly work together for APC’s candidate to win the election.
Fact Checked by CDD:
To ascertain the authenticity of this claim, I called His Excellency, Dr Peter Ayodele Fayose. He debunk the story. He said it was only in the dream of the peddler of such unreasonable news.
In his words, “how can a party be sold? At what price? This is just from the nightmare of the peddlers of such unreasonable news.”
He further said that such unfounded news has been going on for sometime now.
The recorded conversation is attached to this report.
CDD can confirm that there is no such event of the PDP selling out to APC and the news should be disregarded.
