The attention of the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has been drawn to a supposed tweet by him in the Twitter exchanges between Senator Ben Bruce and Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amechi as reported by a national daily.
The Office wishes to reiterate to members of the public that the said Twitter handle does not belong to the person or Office of the Deputy President of the Senate. For the umpteenth time, Senator Ekweremadu does not own a Twitter handle and his other social media accounts were dismantled several years ago as explained in previous statements by the Office.
Several of such fake Twitter and other social media handles were duly reported to the respective platforms and were taken down.
While the Deputy President of the Senate does not shirk from airing his views on issues as he deems fit, he will not accept to be attributed comments he never made. Therefore, the Office, once again, calls on members of the public to discountenance such fictitious social media handles and comments, as they have absolutely nothing to do with his person or Office.
Similarly, the Office, once again, wishes to appeal to media houses, to always crosscheck with it, before going ahead to attribute comments on Social Media platforms to either the person of Senator Ike Ekweremadu or the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate.
Special Adviser (Media) to Deputy President of the Senate
