The statement reads: “Much as I would not have wanted to dignify Faboyede’s statement with a response, I feel it is necessary to put his joke to rest and say he was daydreaming. I have no intention now or in the future to leave the APC.
“His case and that of the PDP can be likened to a drowning man clutching at straw to stay afloat. “
“I want to assure my party, the APC and my supporters of my loyalty and commitment to the party and to them and say I am still very much in the race to clinch the party’s governorship ticket.”
