A former Lagos commissioner of information and strategy, Dele Alake has debunked the nes that he has been appointed as the spokesman for the president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Hours after the inauguration on Monday, Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation, announced on his Twitter handle that Alake has been appointed as the president’s spokesperson.
But speaking on the issue with TheCable, the former director of strategic communication of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign, said the news of his appointment was fake.
“It was fake news. I’m always surprised when news people failed to recognise fake unsigned stories,” Alake said.
Alake was the commissioner for information and strategy in Lagos between 1999 and 2007 when Tinubu was the governor of the state.
