The Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it did not apologize to the former Governor of Cross Rivers State, Mr. Donald Duke, for erroneous usage of his picture in a documentary on the presidential candidate of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Njenje Media News reports.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the Council, Mr. Bayo Onanuga, in a statement issued Monday clarified that a purported statement currently in circulation credited to him did not originate from him.
He insisted that the campaign council did not issue any statement on behalf of Tinubu to apologize to Duke.
Onanuga therefore urged the media and members of the public to disregard the statement as a fake news designed to create confusion and mislead the public.
He said “Our attention has been drawn to a press statement currently in circulation credited to the Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Bayo Onanuga.
“In the said statement, Mr. Onanuga was reported to have apologised to Mr. Donald Duke for an error in the use of his picture in a documentary on Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We want to categorically state that the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council did not authorise the said statement and Mr. Onanuga didn’t issue any statement on behalf of the campaign council and our principal, Asiwaju Tinubu today.”
