The press statement presently in circulation, referencing some Executive Orders allegedly issued by the Executive Governor of Oyo State, His Excellency, Engineer Seyi Makinde is fake.
The individual who signed the statement on Thursday, May 21, 2020, one Adeniran Adenuga, assumed the title of ‘Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Governor’.
The Special Adviser on Media to Governor makinde, Mr Jide Ajani, who confirmed that the fake news is not from Governor Makinde’s Media Office, added that the so-called Executive Orders are false in all materials particular.
Being a member of Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force, Mr Ajani confirmed that no such decisions has been taken; stressing that, as of today, there is no lifting of the ban on public gatherings, including Churches and Mosques.
The Governor’s SA noted that prior to this latest evil scheme, the Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force’s daily update flyer had been cloned and used to post incorrect data.
He added that on another occasion, they had posted pictures on social media depicting outbreak of violence in Oyo State when the Park Management System was kickstarted.
Mr Ajani noted that individuals who can go to this extreme, vile and vicious extent, can do anything, hence, he advised members of the public to ignore the statement and any other unconfirmed News.
