All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Oyo State, Teslim Folarin, has reacted to a video of him making certain political remarks.
The Senator representing Oyo Central lost the March 18 gubernatorial election to Governor Seyi Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
In a disclaimer on Twitter, Folarin denied blaming President-elect Bola Tinubu and other chieftains for the defeat of the APC.
The lawmaker said it was a plot to clog the wheel of his closeness to the former Lagos governor and party co-founder.
“My attention has been drawn to a trending 2:04mins video, blaming Mr. President-elect and other APC chieftains for the outcome of governorship and house of assembly elections.
“It was produced by my sworn enemies with the sole intention to drive wedges in my relationships with our highly revered leader Asiwaju and other party stakeholders,” he tweeted.
Folarin advised the public to ignore the tape, reiterating his post-election comment: “It is only God that gives and takes power.”
The politician conceded defeat on Monday, congratulating Makinde, who secured 563,756 votes against 256,685 votes he polled.
