Reports of appointment of Mahe as Chief of Staff FAKE, UNFOUNDED, says Kwara Govt.

The Kwara State Government has dismissed social media reports that Prince Abdulkadir Mahee has been appointed as the new Chief of Staff (CoS) to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

The government said the reports are false and misleading, and advised members of the public to beware of such fake reports.

Some online news outlets had few days ago reported the appointment of Mahee as the new Chief of Staff to Governor Abdulrazaq, replacing his late CoS, Adisa Logun who died in July.

But while reacting the report during a WhatsApp conversation, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Rafiu Ajakaye said his principal had not appointed anybody as his Chief of Staff, adding that publications regarding the purported appointment of Prince Abdulkadir Mahee did not emanate from official quarters.

“How do people get appointed? Through a media statement? No. People get appointed through official letter and their appointments are validated only through such official communication (letter), identity card, and accompanying instruments of office. Never through announcement on social media. Announcement is an addition; it doesn’t necessarily validate an appointment.

“Media handlers announce appointment with the approval of their principals, not on their own whims. In summary, the media handlers had nothing to clarify on the purported CoS appointment because no letter was ever issued or did any announcement emanate from us,” Ajakaye said.

According to the Governor’s spokesperson, reports of Abdulkadir’s appointment was conjured by some people in their wildest imaginations.

He therefore urged Kwarans to rely on government’s communication channels for information concerning the government.
