The management of University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT, has dismissed a report on the social media that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will hold his campaign rally in the University of Port Harcourt.
In a press statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Dr. Sam Kpenu, the management dismissed the report making the rounds on the social media allegedly credited to one Mr Humble lion with the telephone number +234 7031061646 as false.
The Management of the university stated that it has not authorized any political campaign rally and has no ground for political campaigns.
UNIPORT also said that it is not contemplating releasing its facility for the rally of Atiku Campaign Council.
It therefore called the public to “discountenance this deliberate falsehood aimed at tarnishing the towering reputation of the University as it is simply a figment of the imagination of the author”.
The institution also warned the originator of this falsehood to desist forthwith or face the wrath of the law as the issue has been reported to law enforcement agencies for appropriate action.
