The Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals has called on Nigerians to ignore what it described as fake news, an alleged query of their boss, Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire.
The office said there was not such query from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, described the report published by an online media (not Elanza News) as fake.
“We wish to state categorically that the allegation as contained in a poorly written story, smacks of attempt at blackmail which ordinarily is not worth responding to as it is bereft of any form of fact whatsoever.
“But for the sake of the general public, we wish to state empatically that the leadership of the OSSAP SDGs or indeed, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on SDGs was not at any time querried or invited by any constituted authority as insinuated in the publication.
“The Office of The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals has continue to remain transparent and open in all its official dealings and in the discharge of its duties as provided for in its mandate,” the statement said addi g that there is no iota of truth in the publication which is nothing but malicious attempt at blackmail and smear the image of the Office and the SSAP.
“We urge members of the public to ignore the report which is only a figment of the imagination of the writer,” the management added.
