<p class="">Falana apologises to Moghalu over false claim regarding appointment offer from Federal Government.</p>

<h2>Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana has withdrawn his claim that Kingsley Moghalu, who was a presidential aspirant in the last general election under the Young Peoples Party (YPP), accepted an appointment from the incumbent administration.</h2>

<p class="">Recall that on Monday, October 14, 2019, Falana while speaking at Felabration, a programme in honour of legendary musician, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, told his audience that Moghalu has been offered an appointment to be part of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.</p>

<figure class="image" align="center"> <img src="http://ocdn.eu/images/pulscms/ZGM7MDA_/101cfa89643ef18b12780ba692bd9288.jpg" alt="Kingsley Moghalu says he’s surprised that the false claim came from Falana. [Guardian]"> <figcaption>Kingsley Moghalu says he’s surprised that the false claim came from Falana. [Guardian]</figcaption> </figure>

<p class=""><em>“I think it is unfair to single out Dr. Moghalu for recognition. We should not celebrate opportunism.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Here is a politician who contested on the platform of a party, who has moved conveniently to the APC. They’ve just given him an appointment and he has just discarded his own political party. I don’t think that is fair for all,</em>" the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) was quoted.</p>

<p class="">Although, Moghalu had announced his resignation YPP, under which he contested in the last general elections.</p>

<figure class="embedded_application" align="center"> <figcaption></figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">In his reaction to Falana’s statement, Moghalu clarified that he has not been offered any appointment as claimed by Falana.</p>

<p class="">Moghalu said he’s surprised that the statement came from Falana, a public figure he has much respect for.</p>

<p class="">Following Moghalu’s reaction to the claim he made at Felabration, Falana has released a statement and it read, “<em>At the symposium held in memory of the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti in Lagos yesterday, I did say that Professor Kingsley Moghalu had called it quits with the YPP, the political party which sponsored his presidential election in February 2019. I equally said that he had joined the ruling party and accepted an appointment from the federal government."</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“While confirming his resignation from the YPP, Professor Moghalu has stated that he has neither joined the ruling party nor accepted an appointment from the federal government. I believe him in toto.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“I did not set out to embarrass Professor Moghalu as it was a case of mistaken identity. Any embarrassment caused by the incorrect aspect of the statement is deeply regretted.”</em></p>

<p class="">Falana maintained that it was a case of mistaken identity.</p>
