Yusuf Datti, the Vice-Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has disassociated himself from different social media accounts credited to him.
Datti who talked at a news conference in Abuja on Monday portrayed the accounts as fake, warning he has not been on social media for about a decade.
He said that a few years back, suspected impostors opened different social media accounts in his name without his knowledge or approval, prompting him to lodge complaints which were never attended to by the operators.
“I hereby dissociate my humble self from the creation, ownership and operation of any such social media accounts.
“I equally declare that all exchanges and communications therefrom are without my knowledge or input in any way whatsoever.
“I humbly call on the general public on and offline to disregard any and all exchanges and communications from the fake social media accounts,” he said.
Datti additionally approached the social media platforms owners, creators and operators to understand the perils their highly valued technologies forecast to society.
He asked them to adapt to the challenge of preventing further creation and use of fake accounts on social media.
“I call on the discerning general public, particularly our dear Obidients and useful followers to exercise patience until the resolution of these complaints after which we genuinely communicate towards rescuing Nigeria,” he said.
