Ekiti State Government on Thursday disowned the advert urging people to apply for the N5billion Federal Government palliatives fund.

The state government urged people of the state to ignore all unauthorized advertisements purportedly placed on its behalf.

Commissioner for Information, Taiwo Olatunbosun, made the disclosure in a “disclaimer” in Ado Ekiti.

The statement read, “It has come to the notice of the Government of Ekiti State that some fraudsters masquerading as agents of the State have placed advertisements in some online platforms asking unsuspecting members of the public to apply for the N5 billion Federal Government palliative funds.

“The Ekiti State Government hereby unequivocally disowns all online and any other form of advertisements requesting for applications to benefit from the palliative funds.

“The good people of the State are therefore advised to ignore all unauthorized advertisements purportedly placed on behalf of the State Government.

“The Government has its official channels of communicating its decisions to the Public. Members of the public are also urged to contact the Office of the State Commissioner for information for clarifications and enquiries”.
