APC guber candidate denies collecting money from PDP

10 August 2016, 08:36

Calabar - The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State in the 2015 general elections, Odeh Ochicha has denied selling out his party during the 2015 general elections, reports Vanguard.

He described media reports that he received money from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to concede defeat to the party as untrue and baseless.

Ochicha said that he conceded defeat to the PDP candidate, Ben Ayade in the spirit of sportsmanship which had been misinterpreted by some people that he took money from the PDP during the election.

Ayade according to News 24 polled a total of 342 016 votes to beat Ochicha,  who got 53 983 votes in the April 11 2015 governorship election.

Ochicha said those spreading the rumour that he collected money from Ayade should show facts and petition the EFCC to trace his records before and after the election to prosecute him if he is found guilty.

He stated that the rumour was aimed at fermenting trouble, causing confusion and misleading members of his party and the public,

He urged his party members to be wary of false information from political foes and detractors.
