The immediate past Senator Representing Ondo South Senatorial District, Yele Omogunwa, has described the news that he has defected to the Zenith Labour Party as a blatant lie.
Omogunwa in a statement personally issued by him, faulted the story reported by an online medium that he has dumped the ruling party.
According to him, the story is a baseless falsehood and a figment of the imagination of the reporter or whoever alledgedly confirmed it.
He said, “I want to state without equivocation and any iota of doubt, that I, Senator Yele Omogunwa, remains a member of the APC, as there is no where I have said that to anyone or do anything suggesting my moving out of the APC”.
“This is nothing but a cheap blackmail to cause disaffection among my teeming supporters in Irele Local Government Area of Ondo State and across the state in general.
“It is not uncommon for stories of this nature to fly around in a season like this.
“Let me reiterate that my zeal for the APC and unwavering love for the wellbeing of the people of Ondo South Senatorial District and the state at large remains unshakable”, he added.
