Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele has distanced himself from several twitter handles purportedly owned by him.
Consequently, the CBN in a statement by its Acting Director, Corporate
Communications, Mr. Isaac Okorafor yesterday, warned members of the public not to be misled by the fake twitter accounts as well as to disregard whatever message it conveys.
The statement explained: “The attention of the CBN has been drawn to the existence of several twitter handles purportedly owned by the Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele.
“We wish to inform members of the public, particularly members of the social media community that Mr. Emefiele currently has no twitter handle. We wish to state categorically therefore, that the twitter handles bearing the name and photographs of Mr. Emefiele 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.”
