Warns against purveyors of falsehood, mischief-makers

The Executive Director of Obafemi Awolowo Foundation and Chairman, African Newspapers of Nigeria Plc., Dr. Olatokunbo Awolowo-Dosunmu, has asked Nigerians to ignore the fake news being circulated in her name on the Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima presidential ticket.

The report, being circulated online by some news platforms and on social media, falsely quoted Awolowo-Dosunmu as warning Nigerians of a plot to get rid of Tinubu in favour of Shettima if they win the polls.

Awolowo-Dosunmu, who described the report as false, mischievous and wicked, said that she had not spoken with any journalist in recent time on any matter whatsoever, including the 2023 presidential election and the candidates thereof.

“I am not in partisan politics and I have not been in partisan politics for decades. I have neither endorsed nor condemned any candidate or party. I have no intention to do so. I refuse to be dragged into a matter I know nothing about. I advise whoever is behind this wicked lie to make better use of their time for the progress and development of our country, Nigeria,” she said.

She, however, urged Nigerians and the entire world to assist the country, in every way they could, as we navigate through these trying times and to ignore all confusionists and purveyors of patent falsehood.
