The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has denied renting the mammoth crowd that attended the presidential rally held in the state last week Saturday.

The party through its publicity secretary, Alex Kalejaye, emphasized that what happened in Akure on Saturday was an absolute display of love for, and acceptability of the APC presidential candidate and his running mate.

Kalejaye, who noted that the rumor of the rented crowd was unfounded, added that the party has no reason to resort to deception.

According to him, ‘’The party notes that its members, and indeed the good people of Ondo State, exhibited an enviable degree of maturity in dealing with the thousands of visitors and displayed memorable hospitality during the event.

“We can not appreciate our members and enthusiastic party sympathizers enough for their proper and civilized behaviors.

“We applaud our dear Governor, Arakunrin Oluwatotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON, for providing enviable leadership and direction, in the State and the South West geopolitical zone. The success of Saturday’s event stemmed largely from his ingenuity.

“The victory would, however, be hollow without delivering other candidates; for National, and State Assemblies,” he stated.
