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 operator of the account 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).

The SFG disclosed this in a statement signed by Director of Information, office of the SGF, Willie Bassey.

“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 unsavoury 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.”

Mustapha urged Nigerians to always ensure they verify posts before reacting to it.

“He, therefore, cautions Twitter users and those who respond to certain posts to always endeavour to verify Twitter handles before responding to posts of any sort,” it added.
