“The statement is false and incorrect. She has never at any point decided to leave the APC and the peddlers of that news met her at the party. They will be the ones to leave the party.

“She has contributed everything she has to the party and ensured that she was part of the consolidated efforts that deliver the Presidential Candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.
