DELTA State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa and his predecessor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan have condemned the spread of rumours that negatively impact on the society.
“With all sorts of media for dissemination of information, most times, people will not have access to the right information and this is not helping our nation,” Governor Okowa said, while Dr Uduaghan asserted, “let us reduce the rumour, it does not help government when you create rumour.”
