SFG, Boss Mustapha Disowns Fake Twitter Account
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has disowned a fake Twitter account credited to his name.
A yet-to-be-identified person opened a social media account in the SFG’s used his name to utter appalling statements against the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, and the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Adamawa state, Senator Aishatu Dahiru (Binani).
Reacting, the SFG in a statement signed by Director, of Information, Willie Bassey, advised Nigerian to always verify reports before reacting to them.
“The attention of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, CFR, has been drawn to a fake Twitter handle with a fake user name bearing his name, in which the fake user name dragged his name into making unsavory comments on the governorship candidates of APC in Adamawa and Zamfara States.
“For the avoidance of doubt, SGF wishes to state categorically that he does not own or operate any Twitter handle by such a user name and therefore calls on Nigerians to disregard any negative comments made with such a username on Twitter against the persons of the Governor of Zamfara State and the Governorship candidate of APC in Adamawa State. He finds it mischievous for any person to attach his name to a fake user account.”
“He, therefore, cautions Twitter users and those who respond to certain posts to always endeavor to verify Twitter handles before responding to posts of any sort,” it added.
