Adesina added that it is only those who fear electoral laws that are trying to dissuade the President from running at all means.
The statement read in part “We thought fake news was the sole preserve of the social media in the season. Alas, a traditional medium has caught a bug”
Adesina had during his visit to Space FM 90.1, said Nigerians will vote enmasse to return the President to office in 2019.
