Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, a former minister of state for Defence and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has debunked media reports that he has officially dumped his party and joined the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, party.
In a series of tweets, the Ex-Minister said he only attended a Town Hall meeting organised by Remi Tinubu because he is a “constituent of Lagos Central Senatorial District.”
“Whatever the future holds politically for us, it will be openly done by us and seen by all but right now, please disregard those rumours.
“I commend Sen. Remi Tinubu once again as I continue to consult with my political associates and friends in Lagos, and also across Nigeria. “My attendance has been insinuated wrongly in the media but all such speculations remain firmly in the realm of rumours and imaginations.
“As a Constituent of Lagos Central Senatorial District, I today attended Sen. Remi Tinubu’s Townhall Meeting to support her good work.
Recall that rumour making the rounds had it that senator Obanikoro, announced his defection at a press Conference in Lagos on Tuesday. Recall also that on May 7, reports equally had it that Obanikoro who ran in 2011 as governorship candidate of the PDP in Lagos state would soon pitch his political tent with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
