Gov Abiodun never issued any statement in response to Tinubu – Ogun Govt


Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

The Ogun State Government last night clarified a tweet purported to be the response of Governor Dapo Abiodun to remarks made in Abeokuta by APC presidential aspirant, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Information and Strategy Commissioner Waheed Odusile said in a statement in Abeokuta that the tweet released yesterday morning was an extract to re emphasise the comments of Governor Abiodun to party faithful and appointees on May 29 during the celebration of his third year in office, which also coincided with his 62nd birthday.”
Odusile said the comments “could, therefore, not have been a response to comments by Asiwaju Tinubu whose visits to Abeokuta came five days later.”
He added: “While Governor Abiodun appreciates the media, including online platforms, as partners in progress with Government, he enjoins media practitioners to always report the truth at all times and refrain from giving vent to fake news, distortions and misinterpretations.
