In the world of politics, rumours and speculations often take center stage, diverting attention from the real issues at hand. Recently, a claim made by Jackson Ude, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has caused quite a stir. Ude, a member of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), suggested that President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) intends to utilize his party to orchestrate the removal of the Delta State Governor. However, it is crucial to separate fact from fiction and dismiss these sensationalized claims for what they truly are - unfounded lies. Moreover, the election victory of Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege of the APC speaks volumes about the validity of such claims.

Let us set the record straight. It is no secret that politics in Nigeria is often characterized by intense rivalries and power struggles. However, responsible journalism demands that we critically analyze claims and present the truth to our readers. Ude's statement implying Tinubu's alleged ulterior motives serves no purpose other than to fuel tensions and perpetuate baseless accusations. Let us focus on the real issues at hand and prioritize the development and progress of our beloved Delta State and our nation.

Firstly, it is essential to note that Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, the governorship candidate of the APC, won the Delta State Governorship Election. This victory was not only a testament to the electorate's trust in Omo-Agege but also an affirmation of the strength and support for the APC in Delta State. It is evident that the people have spoken and made their decision, rendering claims of Tinubu's involvement redundant.

Secondly, Ude's affiliation with the PDP raises questions about the credibility and objectivity of his statement. As a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, it is reasonable to question his intentions behind making such an incendiary claim. It is crucial to approach statements made by individuals with vested interests in a fair and balanced manner.

While political maneuvering is a regular occurrence in Nigeria, it is crucial to rely on verified information rather than fall into the trap of sensationalism. Accusations without concrete evidence detract from productive political discourse and create unnecessary divisions among the populace.

Therefore, claims made by Jackson Ude regarding President Bola Tinubu's alleged intention to use the APC to orchestrate the removal of the Delta State Governor are nothing more than unfounded lies. The victory of Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege in the Delta State Governorship Election and Ude's affiliation with the PDP further invalidate these claims. Responsible journalism demands that we separate fact from fiction and promote an informed and educated citizenry. It is crucial to approach political discussions with objectivity, ensuring that our focus remains on the issues that truly matter for the progress of our nation.
