Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (Retd.) has cried out to Nigerians that he does not have social media accounts.
This is coming after a purported congratulatory message to Atiku Abubakar following his emergence as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) using his name and picture.
According to the statement by his media office, it says; “The attention of the media office to General Babangida GCFR, has been drawn to the existence of several twitter handles purportedly owned by the Former Military President.”
“We wish to inform members of the public, particularly members of the social media community that General Babangida currently has no twitter handle.”
“Also, we wish to state categorically therefore, that the twitter handles bearing the name and photographs of General Babangida are fake and targeted at misleading unsuspecting members of the public.”
“Accordingly, we wish to advise all members of the social media community and the general public to be wary of the fake accounts and discountenance whatever message conveyed therein.”
