Mr Akin Osuntokun, the Director-General of, the Obi-Datti presidential campaign said this while interacting with newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
“There is a report in newspapers today that the Labour Party in the southwest announced its dissolution into the APC.
“Of all the names purportedly listed as the members dissolving into APC are unknown to us, therefore the press should not encourage them in this kind of mission,” he said.
Osuntokun said that the report mentioned the title of the leader of the defectors as the chairman of the LP in the southwest zone.
He said that the title was unknown to the party as it only had Zonal Coordinators of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) saying there was nothing like chairman LP southwest.
He added that the PCC was being impersonated and there were fictitious press releases in its name.
“One of these releases purported signed by me revealed me engaging in personal attacks and incriminations about Lagos on account that they did not want to receive our presidential candidate.
“This is a total fabrication and it is all over social media.
“Some people have even started to abuse me before they even hear my own side of the story,” he said.
Osuntokun said that all these including attacks on the party’s members revealed the importance of LP in the presidential race ahead.
He appeal to Nigerians to at least check with the party and encouraged the media to verify reports before publishing them.
