The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday decried the creation of false social media accounts especially on Twitter and Facebook for some of its party leaders.
The party noted that its national chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has no Twitter Handle or on any social media platform at all.
According to the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, “The attention of Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to diverse comments regarding the Closure of our previous Official Twitter Handle on the 5th of September, 2016 and the Launch of a New Official Handle @officialpdpnig immediately. The action was necessary.
“Equally, we have observed that some elements are creating false social media accounts especially on Twitter and Facebook for some leaders of the Party (past and present) with their photographs and purportedly publishing information on them to mislead the public.
“Recall that Senator Makarfi had through his SA (Media) earlier informed the public of this development and refuted ownership of any account. For the umpteenth time, we wish to reiterate that the National Chairman, H.E. Senator Ahmed Makarfi, CON, has no Twitter Handle or on any social media platform at all. Be warned!”
