THE Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has disowned twitter handles purportedly belonging to Godwin Emefiele, its governor.
A statement signed by Isaac Okorafor, acting director, Corporate Communications of CBN, noted existence of several twitter handles purportedly owned by the Emefiele.
However, he 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,” it said.
