This was said in a statement issued by the Campaign Office’s Media Head, Diran Onifade, on Saturday in Abuja.

“We are aware that the claim, of the Sultan endorsing Peter Obi as President, was deliberately contrived to force the Sultan to denounce it, by using unusually strong words.

“We believe that such fraudulent scams and pranks speak volumes on the character of those who employ them as acceptable political strategy, regardless of the grave danger of creating political divides along religious lines it portends.
