Are African leaders also adopting the “fake news” approach? Prof. Bolaji Akinyemi gives a surprising answer.

The response from the former Nigerian foreign affairs minister was not only surprising, but it was also revealing.

It’s no news that the adoption of the fake news approach is on the rise across the world, and most leaders have adopted this approach to push political gains. 

Censoring on Africa, Prof. Akinyemi stated that “he hasn’t fully noticed African leaders using the fake news approach“, however, African leaders lie, hoax, and insight violence all undermining legitimate political engagement and debate.
