Fayose's Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, yesterday denied the statement in an interview with Premium Times. Adelusi said the statement was a “creation of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the state.
"Mr. Fayose never said he would commit suicide if the President returns to the country. It is the creation of the APC. It is their style to create such falsehood. Kindly disregard this statement, as it did not emanate from Governor Fayose. It is their usual way of shifting the people’s attention from the real question Nigerians are asking, as to the whereabouts of the President. At no time was such statement made by the governor.” he said
