Lastest victim of fake news is the National Union of Sierra Leone Student (NUSS).
Report making rounds on social media that the Union has declared its report for All People Congress Party flag bearer hopeful, Alpha Kanu, has been debunked by the Public Relations Officer of the Union, Michael Mitchelle Conteh.
‘’The Union is shocked at the misleading news making the rounds on the social media about NUSS having declared its support for Alpha Kanu,’’the PRO insisted. “We want the public to know that no declaration of any kind was made.”
According to the PRO, Some members of the leadership of the union visited Kanu on a subject that has nothing to do with his presidential aspirations,” said the union PRO
A press release signed by the PRO reads, “We still retain our pens and do not need anyone’s pen to make any declaration on our behalf.
If we want to make any declaration of any kind we still have our vocal cords and pens intact to do it ourselves.”
In a phone interview with the PRO he explained that NUSS, being a mixed bag of students with different political persuasions, cannot throw its support behind any aspirant.
