Moghalu said his attention had been drawn to a news story published by an online news medium, which he described as the false and misleading headline; “Kingsley Moghalu has Joined APC – Anambra Spokesman”.

He said, “This headline, and the claim on which the report is based, is false, mischievous, and tendentious. In late 2019 I resigned my membership of the Young Progressives Party, the party platform on which I was a presidential candidate in the 2019 elections, but I did not subsequently join, and have not joined, any other political party.

“I am therefore NOT a member of ANY political party in Nigeria today. The article by Elombah News is doubly mischievous because, despite my denying this false claim when the online news outlet contacted me, Elombah News nevertheless went ahead to publish the story with this mischievous and misleading headline with no evidence to back it up, while burying my comment debunking the false claim deep inside its story.”

Describing the news as irresponsible journalism, he said, “I ask the public to disregard this fake news report, and to be guided by this clarification.”
