The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West has described online reports that the Lagos State Chairman of the party, Engr Adedeji Doherty had resigned as concocted falsehood to confuse members and supporters of the party in the zone.
Zonal Director of Media and Publicity of the party, Lere Olayinka, who made the clarification on Thursday, urged journalists to be mindful of the divisive plots of those being used by external forces to cause disunity in the PDP.
Olayinka said Mr Gani Taofeek, who was the source of the fake news was duly suspended alongside two other members of the State Exco, and as such, can no longer speak for the party in Lagos State.
He said; “Members and supporters of our great party, PDP, especially in the South-West should ignore that falsehood planted in some online media by the suspended Lagos State Publicity Secretary, Gani Taofeek.
“Engr Adedeji Doherty is working assiduously, alongside other notable leaders of our party in Lagos State to strengthen the party and position it well enough to be able to wrestle power from the party that has not done anything significantly to affect positively, the lives of Lagosian.
“He will not be distracted by the antics of agents of those who have worked hand in hand with those who have held Lagos State down for over twenty years.”
