Congress for Progressive Change on Wednesday said it had not endorsed anyone for the 2015 presidential poll contrary to reports.
The opposition party, in a statement in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin, said it would seek the opinions of its members before taking a position on the election.
The CPC blamed the Peoples Democratic Party for the reports that it had endorsed a candidate for the election.
It said, “We are aware that the piece of misinformation had its roots in the PDP, with its large array of paid agents and proxies to castigate notable CPC members ahead of 2015 elections.
“It is quite asinine to insinuate that a party, in possible merger talks with other coalition partners, will have a candidate already anointed for the presidential election.”
According to the CPC, it believes its candidate should emerge from transparent electoral process and not from selection by anointment.
It added, “We wish to make it abundantly clear that the party leadership has not made any decision on its preferred candidate for the 2015 election.”
“It is vitally important to use this forum to disabuse the minds of our members and teeming supporters from the noxious effect of that publication.”
The CPC restated its commitment to its objectives, adding that it would not be deterred by “sponsored innuendos and deliberate mendacity”.
