FACT CHECK: Did Mr Segun Oni submit a withdrawal letter from the Ekiti Governorship Election?

Segun Oni

Verdict: False

Claim:

Fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a Twitter post on a Twitter account by the name TOCHI with a document showing the statement of the withdrawal of the Flag bearer of the Social Democratic Party Mr. Olusegun Adebayo Oni.

Verification Process:

On carrying out the FactCheck, a phone call was placed to the Public Relations Officer of the Social Democratic Party Mr Ganiyu Salau to ascertain the claim but he debunked it. In his word he said ‘‘how can a winning candidate step down?’’

Conclusion:

CDD can confirm that the presidential aspirant, Segun Oni is still in the race and the letter is a doctored image intended to misinform.
