Report of Appeal Court sacking Ayade is fake news – Aide


The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, Mr Christian Ita, has described as fake news, reports trending on social media claiming the governor has been sacked by Appeal Court in Lagos as the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Saturday’s election.
Ita, in a statement issued on Wednesday said there was no such pending matter in the Appeal Court.
He maintained that the case instituted in a Federal High Court in Abuja by Mr Emmanuel Ibeshi was discontinued when he filed a legitimate notice of discontinuance and as such never went on appeal.
The report, he said, is the handiwork of political opponents who have been dazed by the reality that the governor’s re-election bid was a fait acompli.
The statement therefore, urged members of the public and the governor’s teeming supporters to disregard the fake report.
