Abia State governorship flag bearer of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Professor Greg Ibe, has dismissed as lie from the pit of hell, the report of his purported withdrawal for the younger brother of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and candidate of the Action Peoples Party, APP, Mr Mascot Uzor Kalu.
Professor Ibe said the fake and misleading report was mischievous planted to possibly confuse and deceive his teeming supporters.
The APGA governorship candidate said it was an insult to his person to step down for Kalu who by all standards, is not his match.
He, however, noted that the sponsors of the fallacious report have always benefited through mischief but said they would meet their Waterloo.
Professor Ibe in a statement by the Director General of his Campaign Council, Dr Longman Nwachukwu, urged his supporters and members of the public to disregard the mischievous report.
He said he was still in the governorship race with his running mate, Hon. Obinna Ichita, and could not have stepped down for any attention seeker.
Professor Ibe cautioned media practitioners against peddling false and unconfirmed stories, saying such unpatriotic acts have grave implications.
He advised journalists against making themselves willing tools in the hands of desperate politicians to create chaos in society.
Professor Ibe threatened legal action against the publishers of the fallacious report while demanding that the fallacious report be pulled down immediately.
