Just as voting is about to start today, reports that SDP candidate, Engineer Segun Oni has withdrawn from the Ekiti governorship race went viral.
The report has been shared by multiple Facebook users and pages, as they accompanied the news with a presumed letter head written by the aspirant.
Notably, the Special Adviser to the Ekiti state governor, Ademiloye Moses also shared the report on his Facebook page.
Though the news has been widely shared, KikioTolu News has noted that only appointees of the current government and pages affiliated to them have been sharing the report.
It is a FAKE NEWS. Segun Oni doesn’t make use of such letter head and his official page is yet to verify such claims.
The public needs to remain careful on their source for information, and avoid partisan politicians who are capable of sharing false info.
It is quite unfortunate that the SA Youths to the Ekiti state governor can publicly share such misinformation on his page despite his office.
