The Kaduna State Government has dismissed the media report claiming that the state has been renamed Zazzau State.

Muyiwa Adekeye, Special Adviser of Media and Communications to the state governor, in a statement said that the state had not been renamed as claimed by the report.

Adeleke, who described the news as fake, called on citizens of the state to ignore the elaborate piece of fiction that made the claim of renaming the state.

”Please ignore the elaborate piece of fiction that made the claim. It is fake news,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the news making the rounds on some online platforms claimed that the National Assembly had passed the Bill renaming Kaduna State, which was subsequently sent to Senate President Ahmad Lawan to President Buhari for assent.
