#FAKENEWSALERT : Report of A/Court sacking Ayade false

The reports making the rounds on social media that Governor Ben Ayade has been sacked by Appeal Court in Lagos as the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Cross River State in Saturday’s election is false, Fearless Reports can say authoritatively.

In a fact finding investigation, Fearless Reports gathered that although PDP governorship aspirant, Emmanuel Ibeshi dragged Ayade to court shortly after the primaries, the claimant filed a motion discontinuing with the suit last year.

Fearless Reports further gathered that there was no judgment in the High Court so there was nothing to appeal in the appellant court as claimed in the report.

In a related development, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ayade, Mr Christian Ita, has corroborated the findings of Fearless Reports describing the report as fake news.

Ita, in a statement issued on Wednesday said there was no such pending matter in the Appeal Court.

He maintained that the case instituted in a Federal High Court in Abuja by Mr Emmanuel Ibeshi was discontinued when he filed a legitimate notice of discontinuance and as such never went on appeal.

The report, he said, is the handiwork of political opponents who have been dazed by the reality that the governor’s re-election bid was a fait acompli.

The statement therefore, urged members of the public and the governor’s teeming supporters to disregard the fake report.
