Abuja, Nigeria – We would like to officially address and debunk the false news circulating regarding Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin, the esteemed governorship candidate, allegedly stepping down for Murtala Yakubu Ajaka of the SDP (Social Democratic Party). These claims are entirely baseless and lack any factual foundation. The pictures making rounds were old pictures taken during one of their meetings.
Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin, a highly respected candidate of Accord Party, has not withdrawn from the governorship race. His commitment to serving the people and bringing positive change to our great state remains unwavering. These false rumours are nothing more than a deliberate attempt to mislead the public and undermine the credibility of Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin and his campaign.
We urge the public to exercise caution and not fall prey to misinformation. It is important to verify news from reliable sources and refrain from spreading unverified claims that can damage the reputation of individuals or organizations involved in the electoral process.
Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin firmly maintains his position as the Governorship candidate and is determined to lead Kogi State towards a brighter future. The claims suggesting his withdrawal are nothing more than malicious rumours designed to sow confusion and misinform the public.
Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin’s campaign is built on principles of integrity, transparency, and accountability. He encourages healthy competition and fair play, respecting the rights of other candidates to participate in the electoral process. Any insinuation that Vice Admiral Usman Jibri stepped down based on unverified information is contrary to the spirit of democracy and due process.
We call upon all stakeholders, political parties, and media organizations to prioritize the dissemination of accurate information and responsible reporting. It is our collective responsibility to uphold the integrity of the electoral process and ensure a fair and transparent election.
Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin and his campaign team remain focused on engaging with the people, presenting their vision for progress, and addressing the pressing issues faced by our state. The support and trust of the electorate are crucial in shaping a brighter future for Kogi State, and Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin remains steadfast in his commitment to their welfare.
