 Gombe APC raises alarm over smear plot against Gov Inuwa Yahaya

The Gombe State Campaign Council of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised an alarm of plans to embark on a smear campaign against the State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, who is also the gubernatorial candidate of the party.

According to a press statement by Ismaila Uba Misilli, Director-General, Media and Publicity to the Governor, the planned smear campaign was by members of the opposition political parties in the state.

He stated in the statement, “It has come to the attention of the Gombe State APC Campaign Council, that, some unscrupulous elements in the opposition in the state have concluded plans to come up with concerted smear campaigns against Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, who is the governorship candidate of our party, in the coming days.”

The Governor’s Media Aide added that, “We have credible intelligence that those opposition elements are working in cohort with their paymasters to dish out outright falsehood against our candidate and other party chieftains as part of their last attempts to hoodwink the Gombe electorate who have since made up their minds to reelect Governor Inuwa for a second term.”

“We in the Gombe State APC Campaign Council have deemed it necessary to bring this to the attention of the Gombe people and urge them to disregard any such falsehood in any kind,” he stressed.
