The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Youth Wing, North West zone has described as “false and malicious” a report on social media platforms, claiming that former PDP deputy national chairman Chief Olabode George slapped the Adamawa State chairman of PDP.
They said the peddlers of this fake news are not only enemies within the party working to pull down the PDP ahead of the forthcoming 2023 general elections, but also enemies of Nigerians, who are suffering untold hardship under the ruling party, APC.
In a press statement signed by the Coordinator, Hon Ahmadu Ibrahim, the PDP youth wing however urged some members of the party to stop blackmailing Chief Bode George.
The statement read in part, “Some people sat down somewhere and cooked up this false allegation of slapping the State Chairman of PDP in Adamawa to create unnecessary political tension and cause division in the party. We insist it’s false and should be regarded as one of those distractions that would be nipped in the bid,” it added.
