Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, has said that those afraid of his capacity are behind the insinuation that he plans to dump the All Progressive Congress for the Alliance for Democracy.

Ojudu was reacting to a claim on Sunday by a news portal allegedly operated by an aide to Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti, Lere Olayinka, which reported that Ojudu was about to leave the APC to realise his ambition on the platform of the AD.

But in a quick reaction, Ojudu said as a loyalist of the APC, there was no contemplation on the platform where he hopes to contest for the governorship seat.

“The purpose of the insinuation is to distract us from serious task of engaging stakeholders strategically in the bid to rescuing Ekiti State from political rascals.

“We are not going to submit to such misleading antics. Rather, we will accelerate efforts in achieving our goals.

“The task before us is the rebirth of Ekiti, no amount of distractions from whatever quarters will stop our march to put back Ekiti where it truly belongs.

“Everyone knows that in the last couple of years, this state has become a shadow of what the world used to know it for and returning it to where it belongs is long overdue.

“Without any shred of doubt, I am submitting myself for the governorship primary under the platform of the APC to actualising our collective agenda for a born again Ekiti.

“We are not going to any political party whether Alliance for Democracy (AD) or any other party.

“This rumour does not even deserve any response, but for those who may not know Babafemi Ojudu well enough.
