The Director, Strategic Communications, President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation (Official Spokesperson) Barrister Festus Keyamo SAN, has said that a news item purporting that the Director-General of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Rt. Honourable Rotimi Amaechi, disparaged the chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to the effect that he is “bad luck” to the Party is fake news
According to Keyamo in a statement made available to National WAVES ‘’This news item is a classic case of the much-touted “fake news” that has become a tool in the hands of desperate politicians. It is also an unsuccessful attempt to create a division between both great leaders of the Party’’
He added that Amaechi did not at any forum, whether in private or public, utter such words or anything close to those words in reference to Oshiomhole. Adding that Ameachi holds Oshiomhole in the highest esteem possible.
‘’We have since discovered that this “fake news” was concocted, released and circulated by the sinking main opposition party. Indeed the combination of Rt. Honourable Rotimi Amaechi and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is an obvious nightmare to them.
From our intelligence sources, we wish to alert the general public that as the campaigns draw closer, many of such “fake news” would be released and circulated by the opposition that is presently clutching at straws and harvesting chaff to survive. For them blackmail, outright lies, falsehood and now “fake news” have become their campaign strategy’’
