It Is Fiction, Fake News – Ebri Denies Moves To Unseat Oshiomhole

In Breaking News, Politics

Former Cross River Governor, Chief Clement Ebri has described as ‘fake news’ information making the rounds that he is in cahoots with some Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to unseat the current national chairman of the party, Mr. Adams Oshiomole.

Ebri disclosed this in a telephone conversation with CrossRiverWatch where he said the statement credited to him was an excerpt from his June 6 speech where he declared to contest for the position of the national chairman of the APC.

“Not at all, that thing you see is fake; it is fake news,” Ebri said.

“If you look at the statement, when I declared for the chairmanship thing; my speech in which I delivered; they just went and took excerpt of that speech and made it look like something I did now. This was June 6th. There is nothing like that, no one has contacted me,” he added.

He averred that contrary to what the writers of that piece of information said, neither has he received a call from any of the parties mentioned nor made attempts to contact them even as he wondered whether the sponsors of such information were trying to put him at loggerheads with Mr. Oshiomole.

He said that: “There is nothing. In fact, I haven’t received a call from anybody. It is pure fiction to be dismissed; it is a figment of the creator’s imagination.

“Some people are just trying to be be mischievous. They are trying to create problems between me and Oshiomole or whatever.

“The truth is that there is nothing like that. All these they are saying about Ajimobi or whatever, I have not communicated with them and nobody has even talked to me. Like I said, It is pure fiction.”

Mr. Ebri had stepped down for Mr. Oshiomole which made him emerge unopposed.
