“Our attention has been drawn to the fictitious, mischievous report by one newspaper claiming that they have gathered from the market women and traders that the posters of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice vying for the office of governorship 2023 flooded everywhere in Birnin-Kebbi, Kebbi state.

“We have gone round the city with members of the press, they have seen it by themselves that the published story lack any iota of truth. We have not seen any of such posters flooding Birnin Kebbi.

“We, therefore, want the general public to disregard such information because it was just the figment of imagination of the author,” he said.

Jibrilu- Gwandu noted that the minister had a lot of supporters in the state who might have a lot of interest in him based on his humanitarian services and good leadership, yet, the purported publication of his governorship posters flooding the state was a total lie.

“A situation where someone sit down somewhere and fabricate lies in the name of journalism sends bad signal to the profession.

“If you could recall, on 16 March, 2020, Malami, urged his supporters to restrain from his 2023 governorship campaign posters.

” And also urged them to exercise restrain as it is not yet period of political campaigns in view of the provisions of Electoral Act and extant laws of the Federation,” the media aid said.

It could be recalled that a published news in a newspaper had claimed that Malami’s governorship posters were sighted in Birnin Kebbi markets, Badariyya areas, and other towns in the state.
