Aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social media, Lauretta Onochie, on Monday, fired back at the former military governor of Kaduna State, Col. Abubakar Dangiwa Umar(retd), saying he feeds on fake news.

Umar had written an open letter to Buhari, saying his skewed appointments into offices of the Federal Government, favouring some and frustrating others, shall bring ruin and destruction to the country.

In the open letter, Dangiwa who served as military governor of Kaduna between 1985 and 1988 under the regime of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, asked Buhari to emulate some past Nigerian leaders who showed great statesmanship.

Making mockery of Umar’s letter to Buhari, Onochie tweeted: “When I saw this untrue headline, I felt very sorry for Col. Umar Rtd. He’s been feeding on fake news. Fake news can be damaging. Responding to Fake news can be embarrassing. Fake news strips one of every dignity.”

She advised Umar not to depend on fake news, but rely on facts.
