THE Chief of Staff to the Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki, Hon. Osaigbovo Iyoha has denied the governor’s involvement in a viral published earlier by trojan news media. The Chief of Staff to the Governor said ”Mischief makers pass off 2015 A’Ibom PDP Pry election video as Obaseki”

”The desperation of detractors of Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, is manifest, yet again, with the circulation of an old video of a primary election in Akwa Ibom State and mischievously captioning and passing it off as an altercation involving the governor.

”It must be stated that the intent of the purveyors of the video is patently malicious as it is obvious that the man who is wrongly identified as Governor Obaseki in the said video bears no resemblance with the governor.

”Findings have revealed that the video captured two prominent members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a hot exchange at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium during the PDP Primary Election in 2015.

”This development once again points to the grave consequences of fake news and alternative facts, which mischief makers exploit to cause misinformation and public apathy.

”The public is enjoined to disregard the reference to the governor and be vigilant of similar attempts at misinformation using doctored and misleading content in future”, Mr. Iyoha said.
