“The general public is advised to disregard such information as the Office of the SGF has no such mandate and has not requested for such information.

“The originators of such false news are therefore, warned to desist from using the name of the SGF in their dubious and nefarious activities to fleece unsuspecting members of the public,” he said. (NAN)
