Creation of ‘Office of immediate past governor,’ fake news -Kogi govt

The Kogi State Government has denied report that Governor Ahmed Ododo, has established “Office of the Immediate Past Governor” to be domiciled in the Government House.

Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Oladele John in a statement on Tuesday, said:

“The attention of the Kogi State Government has been drawn to a mischievous report that the Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Ododo, has approved the establishment of the “Office of the Immediate Past Governor” to be domiciled in the Government House.

“The fake news should be disregarded as the handiwork of psychotic mischief makers, who have been thrown into confusion by the unprecedented achievements of our former governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, and the realisation that the good people of Kogi State sincerely appreciate this.

“The laughable report was concocted to create disaffection and mislead the public but the authors failed woefully to confuse intelligent Nigerians.

“We thank the media for exercising restraint and detecting, on their own, that the report was fake.

“We, however, urge the general public to always fact-check before spreading fake news,” the statement added.
