Former Governor of Ogun State and presidential aspirant under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has insisted that he is in the race to secure the presidential ticket and not to align with any other aspirant.

Amosun, in a statement issued Sunday and signed by his media aide, Bola Adeyemi, dispelled the rumors making the rounds that he attended the screening exercise for Senatorial aspirants held on Sunday.

The former Governor said he was never at the screening exercise because he was never a Senatorial aspirant and didn't purchase nominations and expression of interest forms for such.

The statement reads, "The attention of Senator Ibikunle Amosun has been drawn to two news stories trending in the Social Media. The first falsely claims that Senator Amosun has been cleared to contest for the Senate. 

"The second claims that Senator Amosun is set to align with a named presidential aspirant for the presidential contest.

"The two news stories are false. They are instances of the brand of politics that responsible Nigerians abhor.

"For the avoidance of doubt, Senator Amosun procured only the forms for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress(APC) and did not attend the screening exercise for Senatorial aspirants because he is not one.

"Also, Senator Amosun is in the race for the presidential ticket of the APC and has no plans to align with any politician in the race. 

"The false news stories should be dismissed."

It will be recalled that the former National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomole, on Sunday, was screened for Senatorial primaries, days after the former Edo State Governor declared to contest for the President.

It was not clear whether Oshiomole procured that N100 million with presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.

It has been rumoured that many presidential aspirants both in APC and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have also obtained Senatorial forms.
