Tinubu Didn’t Appoint Me Political Leader In Ondo State – Tunji-Ojo



Nigeria’s Interior Minister, Bunmi Tunji-Ojo says contrary to news report, President Bola Tinubu didn’t appoint him as the leader of the APC in Ondo State.

Babatunde Alao, Special Adviser to the Minister on Media and Publicity in a press release on Wednesday, urged the public to disregard the misinformation contained in the viral news article and to always rely on credible sources for accurate information.

“It has come to our attention that a news article circulating on Blueprint newspaper, titled “Tinubu appoints interior minister political leader in Ondo,” claiming that the Minister of Interior, Hon. (Dr) Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has been appointed as the political leader in Ondo state by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We would like to categorically state that this report is entirely baseless and fictitious.

“The Minister of Interior, Hon. Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, completely disassociates and distances himself from the purported appointment, as it holds no truth whatsoever. There has been no meeting held with all the local government APC chairmen and leaders in Abuja, as alleged in the article.

“While the Minister is aware that the party’s governorship primary election is days away, he has advised aspirants to embrace the spirit of love and sportsmanship.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR), as the father of the nation and as the leader of the party, is a democrat whose interest is always to promote unity and peace and would not be involved in any action that will undermine that,” the press release added.
