Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, on Thursday has asked the public to discredit messages credited to her on social media, saying she does not own any Twitter account.
In a statement issued by Festus Akanbi, her spokesman, Adeosun said the content of the account does not reflect her position.
Adeosun said she does not own a Twitter account, dismissing the account @Mrskemiadeosun.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Honourable Minister does not own a Twitter account. The Twitter handle currently trending, and any other Twitter handle presently in existence is not, and cannot be that of the Honourable Minister, as a twitter account has not yet been set up for her.
“It is obviously fake and does not represent the views and opinions of the Honourable Minister.
“Also, at no time did the Honourable Minister, who addressed the media immediately after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council, make such a statement.”
