The ODM Party refutes a statement sent out to the media on Thursday and saying Raila Odinga has not declared his presidential ambition hence the statement was just in participation of fools day.

He will not compete with his deputies Ali Hassan Joho (Mombasa Governor) and Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega Governor) but it was a well-executed April Fool’s Day prank.

In a statement on Friday, the ODM party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna said the party ‘took the liberty of joining in the days' jokes with our communication yesterday knowing well our friends in media and politics would not know better.

ODM’s state antagonists consumed the hook line and the sinker, falling headfirst into ODM’s prank.

“They came out guns blazing, frothing at the mouth at April Fools misdirection, you need to lighten up my, friends. It’s never that serious” Sifuna said in the statement.

According to Sifuna, the ODM leader had not applied for the Party’s ticket as had earlier been communicated.

“Raila Odinga did not apply for the Party’s ticket, His long-held position is that he will not discuss 2022 until after the BBI process is done,” Sifuna added.
