The Director-General of the National Orientation Agency, (NOA) Dr Garba Abari has warned the public to beware of a fake public alert on safety tips during a rainstorm which was purportedly issued by the Agency and is in circulation, mostly on the social media.

According to him, the Agency would want to make it clear that the alert on safety tips was not issued by the Agency and does not align with our operational procedure. “Our procedure requires that relevant government Agencies issue a warning and seek NOA”s intervention to take to a wider public.

“The notice itself does not conform with known scientific evidence on safety during a rainstorm and therefore misleading” he added.

NOA, therefore, appealed to Nigerians to ignore the message as it is the handiwork of merchants of fake news for which the Agency has committed man-hour and resources to preach against.

The DG urged all Nigerians to join the fight against fake news and hate speech.
