No, the claim that President Bio admits defeat over ‘Stolen Election Mandate’ is false.

SLAJ-iVerify has fact-checked the claim that President Bio admits defeat over ‘Stolen Election Mandate’ and found it to be false.

Claim

Over Stolen Election Mandate… Bio Admits Defeat

Rating Justification

SLAJ-iVerify has fact-checked the claim on a local tabloid, which reads, ‘Stolen Election Mandate… Bio Admits Defeat,” and found it to be misleading.

To arrive at this conclusion, SLAJ iVerify examined the content of the story and discovered that the claim in the headline is at variance with the content of the article.

While the headline of the story sensationally reads, “Stolen Election Mandate… Bio Admits Defeat,” The lead and subsequent paragraphs of the article were entirely about President Bio’s opening speech at the cabinet retreat in Bo.

In that speech, President Bio did not accept defeat as claimed; rather, he urged his cabinet to recalibrate their actions and deliver on the mandate given to them.

Also, SLAJ-iVerify followed other publications about the president’s opening speech and found nothing about him accepting defeat over the election mandate.

Based on these findings, SLAJ iVerify concluded that the claim is False

Note: False The claim is inaccurate, according to the best evidence publicly available at this time.
