Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has denied calling for the cancellation of Imo ward congresses.
Sagay accused some faceless people of trying to use his name to advance their cause in the controversy trailing the election.
He said: “have always willingly responded to requests for my views, on virtually any subject matter issue by Members of the Press. Therefore there is absolutely no excuse for a reporter to cook up a story and ascribe it to me as my views during an interview.
“My so-called “call for the cancellation of APC ward congress” was fake, fraudulent and dishonest. No reporter contacted me on the matter and I could not have responded to a non-existent interview”.
“This sort of forgery, ultimately sours the good relationship between the press and those interviewed. I am therefore not surprised that no Reporter’s name was credited for the false interview”
