A controversial party chief in Nigeria’s southwestern state of Ondo, says that contrary to reports in the local news media, he has not resigned his position as party chief.

Ade Adetimehin, who chairs the state chapter of the All Progressives’ Congress, said that he is still the chairman of the party and does not plan to step down.

The All Progressives’ Congress, is Nigeria’s dominant political group and the party controls both houses of the bicameral legislature based in the state capital Abuja, a majority of seats in state legislatures and has the most governors in the populous West-African nation.

Mr Adetimehin said that the People’s Democratic Party, which is the largest opposition bloc, spearheaded the rumours in order to cause disaffection within the APC’s rank and file.

He said: “It is not true that I resigned from the APC. I am the chairman of the ruling party in Ondo State, a party that is still going to win the next election by the grace of God.

“The PDP is behind the rumour. They are desperate and that is why they are employing lies and all manner of propaganda but the people of the state have made up their minds to vote APC again.”
