Kogi, Bayelsa guber polls: APC cautions on fake news

By Abdallah el-Kurebe, Editor

#TrackNigeria: As the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections approaches, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned Nigerians on the fake news being spread in the social media.

A statement by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu on Monday in Abuja, said the party was initially ignoring the fake statements on the elections until recently.

He said it was however necessary to debunk several fake statements that were being ascribed to the party and its National Chairman, Mr Adams Oshiomhole.

“It should be noted that neither the party nor the national chairman has made any statement at any forum regarding these elections. The numerous quotes being ascribed to the party and the national chairman are mere fabrications intended for mischief.

“APC has demonstrated absolute fidelity to the best democratic practices in the manners the party has conducted its affairs so far. As a progressive party, we are focused on even doing better as we look forward to the commencement of a new four-year tenure,“ the statement read.

He added that in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s vision for the country and APC’s continued effort towards deepening participatory democracy, the party`s National Working Committee (NWC) would abide by the rules at every stage of the process of primary elections.

He assured that the party’s leadership would provide a level playing ground to all aspirants for the elections in the affected states.

Issa-Onilu said that relevant information and the official party guidelines for the respective elections would be released by the party through official channels in due course.

He, therefore, advised that the fake news and quotes should be ignored.
