TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - After being hit by a hoax claiming Ma’ruf Amin had fallen ill, the vice presidential candidate and Jokowi’s running-mate continues to go on with his campaign visit to Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).
Ma’ruf Amin mentioned the hoax on Monday, which claimed he had fallen ill and was unconscious. “I was said to have fallen ill today. I’m healthy. This is a prime example of false information and hoax,” said the VP candidate during his campaign at Madura, East Java, yesterday.
