I have not endorsed or condemned any candidate or party ~ Awolowo
Awolowo Dosumu have asked Nigerians and the world to beware of purveyors of falsehood, mischief makers over the news making rounds of her stand on Tinubu/Shettima ticket.
In her message, she said;
“I did not speak with any journalist on Tinubu/Shettima ticket.
“I am not in partisan politics; I have not endorsed or condemned any candidate or party”.
Executive Director of the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation and Chairman, African Newspapers of Nigeria Plc, Ambassador Dr Olatokunbo Awolowo Dusumu has asked members of the public to ignore a fake news being circulated in her name on the Bola Tinubu/ Kashim Shettima presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The fake news being circulated online by some news platforms and on social media falsely quoted Awolowo Dosumu as warning Nigerians of a plot to get rid of Tinubu in favour of Shettima if they win the 2023 presidential election.
Awolowo Dosumu described the report as false, mischievous and wicked stating that she had not spoken with any journalist in recent times on any matter whatsoever including the 2023 presidential election and the candidates thereof.
“I am not in partisan politics and I have not been in partisan politics for decades. I have neither endorsed nor condemned any candidate or party. I have no intention to do so. I refuse to be dragged into a matter I know nothing about. I advise whoever is behind this wicked lie to make better use of their time for the progress and development of our country, Nigeria,” she said.
Awolowo Dosumu urged Nigerians and the entire world to assist the country, in every way they can, as we navigate through these trying times and to ignore all confusionists and purveyors of patent falsehood.
Charity Reporters had published an alleged report making the rounds on social media that the daughter of nationalist Obafemi Awolowo, Dosunmu Awolowo had called on Nigerians especially the Yourba nation to open their eyes.
The report stated that Dosunmu alleged that Tinube will be eliminated after the 2023 swearing in and hand over, for Shettima to become the next constitutional president of Nigeria. SEE DETAILS HERE.
Dosumu has reportedly denied the trend, while warning peddlers of such unimaginable claim.
