Who is fooling who? Am not on social media – Lai Mohammed
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said he has no facebook and twitter account.
The Minister, called on the publics to disregard any social media account credited to him
This was contained in a statement on Sunday while debunking reports that President Muhammadu Buhari will travel to the United States on Monday, to meet with US president President Donald Trump.
According to the Minister, ”Numerous parody accounts have been opened in my name on the two platforms, when indeed I have no Twitter or Facebook accounts”.
The Minister recalled how one of the parody Twitter accounts @MohammedLai was used to circulate a fake report that he sharply criticised Senator Dino Melaye for attending the Notting Hill Carnival in the United Kingdom.
Lai Mohammed vowed that the Federal Government would soon fish out those behind these fake accounts.
The minister, therefore, urged the publics to be very careful in receiving and spreading information from Social Media.
“That is why we are urging Nigerians to be more discerning and to double check any information emanating from the Social Media,” Mohammed said.
