Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on Monday, dissociated himself from the twitter exchange allegedly involving him, the senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Ben Bruce and the Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi, saying that the said twitter handle does not belong to the person or Office of the deputy senate president.
You will recall that Amaechi and Ben Bruce, over the weekend engaged in a twitter fight over the recent activities of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
A national daily had reported that Ekweremadu contributed to the exchange of words through his twitter handle.
But Ekweremadu, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Uche Anichukwu, in Abuja, said the senator does not own twitter handle or any other social media account.
The statement read, “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 senate president does not shirk from airing his views on issues as he deems fit, he will not accept to be attributed comments he never made.”
The statement therefore, called 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.”
