They’d quoted Gov. Ugwuanyi as saying he was snubbed by the presidency.
However reacting, Fani-Kayode wrote, “I simply spoke with my buddy and brother
Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state & I can verify that the assertion that was attributed to him on social media this morning which is making the rounds is FAKE.
“He didn’t have any dialog with Presidency officers on the telephone & Ugwuanyi is likely one of the few Governors and leaders that now we have on this nation at the moment that could be a profoundly good man.
“It’s a pity that anybody would search to deal with him like this and demean him on this approach. If we aren’t cautious faux information will kill us all on this nation.
“These behind this disinformation and these lies are merely despicable,” Fani-Kayode said.
In the meantime, a video clip of an interview granted by the Governor in 2016 additionally debunking the identical allegation has emerged.
