The Sun newspapers has tendered an unreserved apology to Enugu state Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for erroneously stating that Ugwuanyi is vehemently opposed to the choice of former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as running mate to PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

THE said report also quoted Ugwunayi as vowing to work for President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential election next year.

The story, which has been deleted from its online platform is entitled “Why South East govs, leaders moved against Obi as Atiku’s vice,” and was published in its sister publication, Sunday Sun.
