Former Governor of Ekiti state Segun Oni has dismissed report he is planning to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) for another party.
Oni, who is a Deputy National Chairman of the party, was reacting to a report that he was planning to join a speculated coalition.
The former governor, according to a statement by his spokesman, Steve Alabi, said “Why would I decamp to any other political party, either existing or yet to be formed aside the APC.

“I have said times without number, and I want to reiterate it, as far as Segun Oni is concerned, the reason why I’m contesting this election is because of my party.
“Therefore, if I’m not the candidate of my party, I will still work for my party, if I lose the upcoming Ekiti APC primaries, I will remain loyal to the party.
“Why will I leave the APC? I have been here; we conscientiously fought the PDP out of power, with everything we have got.
”Those peddling the rumours are either bystanders or those who don’t believe in the agenda of President Buhari and who are now trying to find ways of rubbishing people who believe in the president.”
