Rivers State Govt Says Viral Report On Marriage Task Force Is Fake, Morally Offensive
VIRAL REPORT ON MARRIAGE TASK FORCE FAKE- RSG
The Government of Rivers State has described as “fake news” a viral report alleging that Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has set up a Marriage Monitoring Task Force in the State.
The Government considers as spurious and morally offensive the viral report alleging that the State had ordered ‘any Rivers man willing to marry must have at least 5Million Naira or a property in the equivalent of the stipulated amount.’
“Although fake news is not a new phenomenon, it is most appalling, and wrong on part of those who are deliberately circulating misleading and incorrect information to the unsuspecting public.
“The State will not hesitate to take necessary legal action against the purveyors of this malicious news if they don’t desist from their morally reprehensible act.”
