Agboola’s spokesman, Babatope Okeowo said news that his principal has stepped down in the ongoing Ondo gubernatorial election is fake and should be disregarded.

He told the Tribune newspaper: “The document is fake and should be disregarded. It is doctored to demean Mr Agboola.”

Similarly, the director of media and publicity, Ajayi Campaign Organisation, Mr Akinsola, said the withdrawal was a figment of a hyperactive imagination.
