The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice Presidential Candidate for the 2019 elections, Peter Obi, is not on Twitter, according to his Special Adviser, Valentine Obienyem, on Monday.
This is in reaction to a statement published in some newspapers purportedly extracted from Obi’s supposed Twitter handle, which, for reasons only known to the impostor, used the term “lifeless” in relation to the present administration.
“It was just brought to our notice about a certain Twitter account purportedly handled by former Governor of Anambra State and PDP Vice Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi,” Obienyem said.
He advised the general public to “disregard any Twitter or Facebook account bearing the name of Peter Obi as he is not on any social media platform at the moment”.
Obienyem disclosed that fear of misrepresentation and mischief were among the reasons why Obi was yet to join any social media platform. He assured that the public would be duly informed when he opens any social media account.
