“His Excellency has in clear and unambiguous terms denied the said list, saying, it is false, baseless, unfounded, misleading and has nothing to do with him. The Chairman of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee said the party has not taken any decision at any fora on anything relating to the zoning of offices. The publication is just a figment of the author’s imagination that has nothing to do with the Chairman and the party.
“The public is hereby urged to disregard the purported list as it is misleading and completely false. Governor Buni urged the press to resist unverified stories and rumours and to always verify all issues related to the party assuring that the doors of the party are always open.”
