Kogi State Government Denounces False Claims of Establishing “Office Of The Immediate Past Governor”

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

In statement made available to National Wire on Tuesday, signed by Oladele John NIHI, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, he said the fake news should be disregarded as the handiwork of psychotic mischief makers, who have been thrown into confusion by the unprecedented achievements of the former Governor, Alhaji Yahaya, 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”, he added .
