The Osinbajo Campaign Media Team has denied promising to provide hotel accommodation for 7,000 All Progressives Congress (APC) delegates in the presidential primary of the party, thereby urging members of the public to ignore such reports.
The media team made the clarification in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
The statement said, “We have seen an outlandish news report that a so-called Osinbajo Campaign Organisation has said that it would provide hotel accommodation for more than 7,000 APC delegates across the country during the party’s presidential primary election.
“Attributing such a claim to Sen. Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser to the President in the Office of the Vice-President, the report falsely claimed that Ojudu announced this to delegates in Minna while wooing them to vote for Osinbajo during the party’s primaries.
“For the records, Ojudu at no time made such a claim and the Osinbajo Campaign Team has no such plans.
“Such reported offers of free accommodation and free food should be ignored.
“The vice president has continued to spend time interacting directly with the APC delegates and concerned parties across the country and answering their questions on issues of politics and governance.
“It is the plan and intention of the Osinbajo Campaign Team to keep engaging the APC delegates on the major issues of the day, exchanging ideas on how to move the country forward and forging a partnership of stakeholders whose collaboration would go beyond the 2023 elections.”
The APC presidential primary election is scheduled for May 29 and 30 at a special national convention in Abuja.
