Mr. Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole has denied the invitation sent out earlier today, April 29, 2022, for his rumoured presidential declaration.
In chat with newsmen who had initially thronged venue of his declaration, Cyprian Ekwensi Centre for Arts and Culture, Abuja, without his trace, the sacked National Chairman of All Progressives Congress APC, referred to the invitation by his media aide as a mistake.
“It must be a mistake!
“I will not declare on the pages of Newspapers. If I will declare, it will be to people.” Oshiomhole embarrassingly told reporters.
Speaking with newsmen who sighted him elsewhere in Abuja, the former Edo state governor denied nursing any presidential ambition.
Social media invites had been sent to some journalists and other stakeholders on Friday morning, asking them to attend Oshiomhole’s presidential declaration at the Federal Capital Territory FCT Council for Arts and Culture in Area 10, Abuja.
Some streets of Abuja and the venue were dotted with presidential posters of the former governor of Edo State.
A handful of hired crowd had thronged the advertised and waited for hours only to be told that the event would no longer hold.
