The government of Osun state has denied a fake report that the state has received One Thousand, Five Hundred Bags of rice from the Federal Government to distribute to the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN).

Describing the report as false without any foundation in truth, the state government in a news release signed by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Oluomo Kolapo Alimi said the Federal Government has not sent any rice palliatives to the state since the batch sent last year which was shared to the public through a committee of public associations and groups.

The Committee that shared the last rice package had the CAN Chairman and others as members and there is no way any consignment will reach the state without the committee being informed and engaged in the distribution, the Commissioner noted.

The statement therefore challenged operatives of the All Progressive Congress (APC) who spread the fake news to substantiate the allegation as well as cautioning broadcast organizations to desist from providing platforms for those marketing fake news.

We further call on members of the public to ignore the purveyors of such lies as this administration is committed to accountability and transparency in state governance.

Signed:
Oluomo Kolapo Alimi,
Honourable Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment
