The Union according to a statement issued by her National Publicity Secretary, Abubakar S. Imam said the purported report did not emanate from IEDPU.

“It is also important to warn impostors to stay clear of the Union and desist from impersonation of her officials.News media are equally enjoined to always seek clarification from the appropriate organ(s) of the Union, particularly at this political season, before going to the press or on air so as to forestall misrepresentation of facts” the statement added.
