The 2020 general elections is gradually heating up and so are the fake news articles that will be churned out.
Since former President John Dramani Mahama announced Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2020 Presidential election, a lot of women groups have commended him and congratulated the professor.
A lot more others have also condemned the NPP for attacking the Professor since her name was unveiled.
As some high profile women have publicly congratulated the Professor a news item reported that the award winning actress Jackie Appiah has committed to campaigning for the professor.
It claimed that the actress has ‘vowed’ to do so.
However, it turns out she has not said such a thing and the news report was one big fake news item.
The actress shared a screenshot of the story’s headline with the word “Fake” written boldly on it and “Fake News” written at the top of the screenshot.
As the political season picks up, many will run fake news items. Please be mindful of which story to retweet or share.
