When asked about the current rumors trending online as regards what is happening in aso rock she replied:
“The genesis of this fake news started when my husband fell sick and perpetrators of this act were showing fake ambulance, hospital and dead body suggesting that my husband is dead.”
“That time, I received so many calls from other first ladies and presidents of other countries to confirm; so I called the attention of the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC), the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and the National Orientation Agency (NOA) to the fake news.”
“Fake news will lead this country to something else if actions are not taken against it with immediate effect,’’ she said.
