PRESIDENCY DEBUNKS RUMOURS OF ABBA TESTING POSITIVE FOR COVID19

GARBA SHEHU

The Presidency has called on Nigerians to ignore the rumour making rounds about the Covid-19 status of Sariki Abba, a presidential aide to the President.

According to the press release signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the report was a sheer fabrication and brazen effort of online news medium to mislead the public.

He said that all staff working for and around the presidency are routinely and well checked for the virus of which the Senior Special Assistant, Social Affairs and Domestic Matters, Sariki Abba always returned negative.

Shehu, therefore, urged the public not to be manipulated by mediums that thrive on yellow journalism and fake news to get money donors.
