Nimbo crisis: Fani-Kayode debunks fake news on Governor Ugwuanyi (VIDEO)


Former aviation minister, Femi Kani-Kayode has described as fake news, a report being peddled on social media against His Excellency, the Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

The purveyors of the said fake news had attributed a statement to Governor Ugwuanyi on the 2016 Nimbo crisis.

They had quoted Gov. Ugwuanyi as saying he was snubbed by the presidency.

But reacting, Fani-Kayode wrote, “I just spoke with my friend and brother
Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state & I can confirm that the statement that was attributed to him on social media this morning which is making the rounds is FAKE.

“He did not have any conversation with Presidency officials on the phone & Ugwuanyi is one of the few Governors and leaders that we have in this country today that is a profoundly good man.

“It is a pity that anyone would seek to treat him like this and demean him in this way. If we are not careful fake news will kill us all in this country.

“Those behind this disinformation and these lies are simply despicable,” Fani-Kayode stated.

Meanwhile, a video clip of an interview granted by the Governor in 2016 also debunking the same allegation has emerged.

Governor Ugwuanyi had in 2016 when the same statement was circulated, dismissed it completely.
