The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, deputy governorship candidate in Cross River State, Lady Emana Duke Ambrose-Amawhe, has refuted claims that she will resign her position as running mate to the Governorship Candidate of the PDP, Senator Sandy Onor.
She said the publication has no element of truth and is nothing but a figment of the writer’s own distorted imagination.
The statement reads in part:
“Our attention has been drawn to a malicious and inciting post circulating on social media by agents of the All Progressives Congress, in an attempt to brandish a false narrative that the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate and his Deputy, Lady Emana Duke Ambrose-Amawhe are not on the same page. This could not be more untrue.”
“Ordinarily, the person of Lady of Emana Duke Ambrose-Amawhe does not join issues with overzealous errand boys, who earn a living by spewing lies and unfounded falsehood, in a frail attempt to deliberately misinform the public and garner goodwill from unsuspecting electorates. However, it is pertinent that we state the facts clearly for the benefit of unsuspecting Cross Riverians.”
“The said publication has no element of truth and is nothing but a figment of the writer’s own distorted imagination. For the avoidance of doubt, there has never been a time where Lady Emana Duke Ambrose-Amawhe has said privately or publicly that she will resign her position as running mate to the Governorship Candidate of the PDP. Senator Sandy Onor has nothing but love for the people of the South and respects all his Southern alliances, especially due to the fact that he has a Southern matrilineal heritage.”
“It is not a new thing in our political culture for failing political Parties to engage the services of spin-doctors and propagandists to sell lies to gullible members of the public, in an attempt to reignite the dying embers of a terminally ill Party.”
“The electorates are wiser now, and their votes will count in the coming elections.”
