Niger state governor, Abubakar Sani Bellow has denied claims he owns a company contacted by INEC as false.
In a statement sighted by KikioTolu News and signed by the CPS to the Governor, Mary Noel-Berje, he described such claims as false, malicious and misleading.
Governor Sani Bello said he is neither a contractor with the electoral umpire nor share ownership of a company with the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate and former Governor of Lagos State Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He expressed concern on how some people have chosen to use social media platforms for negativity, making every efforts to malign the reputation of others.
The Governor who maintained that he worn Governorship election in Niger state twice without having to do any contract with INEC, wondered how something that has never existed can be renewed.
“I contested for Governorship and won in 2015 and I am now finishing my second term, all these without having any contract with the electoral umpire, how then can a contract that has never been done with someone be renewed?
“While it baffles me what the originator of this lie tends to achieve, it is really disturbing that some politicians have become desperate and are trading on dangerous paths in their quest for power and most worrisome are the people aiding in circulating unverified information”, he stated.
He enjoined the general public to disregard the information as it is completely false but rather remains focus and prepared for the 2023 general elections to vote for the right candidates and not desperate politicians.
