JUST IN: Interior minister denies being appointed as Ondo APC political leader by Tinubu

Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior, has refuted reports claiming that he was appointed as the political leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Alao Babatunde, Tunji-Ojo dismissed the report as baseless and fictitious.

The minister emphasized that no such appointment had been made and distanced himself entirely from the purported designation, asserting that it held no truth.

“There has been no meeting held with all the local government APC chairmen and leaders in Abuja, as alleged in the article,” the statement clarified.

While acknowledging the impending APC governorship primary election, Tunji-Ojo advised aspirants to embrace the spirit of love and sportsmanship.
