I have no Twitter account, says Babangida

Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, said he currently has no Twitter or any social media accounts.

  He also disowned all accounts bearing his names and photographs.

  Babangida, in a statement by his media aide, Zubairu Abdulrauf, advised members of the public to ignore claims to that effect.

  The 77-year-old said that the social media accounts were targeted at misleading unsuspecting members of the public.

  His words:

“Our attention has been drawn to the existence of several Twitter handles purportedly owned by the former military president; members of the social media community should know that Babangida currently has no Twitter handle.

  “We wish to state that the Twitter handles bearing the name and photographs of Babangida are fake, and also advise the general public to be wary of the fake accounts and discountenance whatever message conveyed therein.”

  One of the Twitter accounts, which tweets seem to endorse the recently emerged PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, allegedly said that he supported the former vice president because he has almost all his investments in Nigeria.

This is also reminisces a Twitter account purportedly belonging to former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. He has also severally denied owning any social media account.
