An online medium “news accelerator” reported that the governorship candidate of the APC allegedly presented the certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the March 2 governorship election.
The media aide to Abdulrazaq, Rafiu Ajakaye, has dismissed the allegations, saying its fake news.
He stated that his principal submitted genuine documents to INEC.
“The media may note that Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq was prequalified and indeed contested elections in 2011 and 2015 with the same genuine WAEC results,” Ajakaye said.
“Raising fake news about his certificate now is another lame attempt by the discredited political dynasty clutching at straws in the face of imminent defeat in the elections.”
Warning the media to be wary of publishing false news report, Ajakaye maintained, “We, however, add that the candidate reserves the right to press charges against anyone who deliberately and mischievously peddles lies against him without any credible evidence.”
