It’s fake news – Kingsley Moghalu denies joining APC
The presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in 2019, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has denied joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He disclosed in a series of tweets on Wednesday morning while reacting to a report in an online newspaper (not The Herald).
Moghalu said that the report appeared with the “false and misleading” headline “Kingsley Moghalu has Joined APC – Anambra Spokesman”.
According to him, “This headline, and the claim on which the report is based, is false, mischievous, and tendentious.
He explained that though he has since resigned his membership of YPP, he has yet to make up his mind to join any other political party.
“In late 2019 I resigned my membership of the Young Progressives Party, the party platform on which I was a presidential candidate in 2019, but I did not subsequently join, and have not joined, any other political party.
“I am therefore NOT a member of ANY political party in Nigeria today.
“The article by Elombah News is doubly mischievous because, despite my denying this false claim when the online news outlet contacted me, Elombah News nevertheless went ahead to publish the story with this mischievous and misleading headline with no evidence to back it up, while burying my comment debunking the false claim deep inside its story. This is irresponsible journalism.
“I ask the public to disregard this fake news report, and to be guided by this clarification,” Moghalu said.
