The Enugu State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed rumors about the health of their governorship candidate, Peter Mbah, as false and baseless.
Nana Ogbodo, the Director of Public Communications and Spokesperson for the PDP’s Enugu State Campaign Council, issued a statement on Thursday refuting the unfounded story circulating on social media.
In his statement, Ogbodo stated that the report of Mbah collapsing at the National Youth Service Corps headquarters in Abuja due to false claims of his discharge certificate being forged was “the height of hallucination by a rudderless and lazy opposition that want to ascend to power by subterfuge”.
He went on to say that “The Campaign Council wondered why Mbah would slump over an apparent hatchet job by a purchased syndicate when the culprits should actually be cooling their feet and singing about all they know, including their sponsors, in the custody of law enforcement agencies.
“The Campaign Council also wondered why Sahara Reporters would carry such “apparently concocted falsehood without seeking a reaction from Dr. Mbah or the Campaign orgnaisation”.
“It is ridiculous to claim that our governorship candidate, Dr. Peter Mbah, slumped over a hatchet job by a purchased syndicate to smear, distract, and scuttle our governorship project, which has been overwhelmingly embraced by the people of Enugu State.
“In the meantime, we reassure our supporters that there is nothing to worry about as Dr. Peter Mbah is taking every necessary step within the provisions of the law to ensure that everyone involved in this malicious project is brought to book.” He added.
On Wednesday, Sahara reporter’s had alleged that the Enugu PDP Gubernatorial candidate, Peter Mbah, slumped in Abuja on Tuesday after realising he parades fake NYSC discharge certification.
