"In the same report, my supervisor, Tompolo, was likewise said as one of the supporters of the NDA. My underlying choice was to overlook the said report as a consequence of the source and the fake way of the story. In any case, to set the records straight, I chose to compose to separate my supervisor and myself from that underhanded and vindictive report.
"My consideration has been attracted to a late distribution by one RNDA, which indicated to have recorded "affirmed" patrons of NDA. I need to say that this case is false, vindictive, defamatory and without any particle of validity. May I help the all inclusive statement to remember Nigerians and the global group that I am as of now confronting six unique cases in different courts verging on my stewardship in NIMASA.

"For the evasion of uncertainty, let us state completely this is only an explicit blend of misrepresentation clearly bound with the political goal of tossing a spanner underway of our across the nation battle/conference with PDP delegates all through the nation in our offer to challenge the National chairmanship of the PDP.
"Notwithstanding the fanatic political procedure in the nation, now plainly swarmed with all way of unfairness, sharpness and unwholesome acts by contradicting political on-screen characters, he has dependably and will dependably be a promoter of winning every political challenge reasonable and square."
