The Central Bank of Nigeria has said the twitter accounts linked to CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele are FAKE.
Though the handles bear his name and photographs, the Acting Head, Corporate Communications, CBN, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, says they are not his and are only meant to mislead unsuspecting members of the public. Below is the press statement from them.
“The attention of the Central Bank of Nigeria has been drawn to the existence of several twitter handles purportedly owned by the Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele.
“We wish to inform members of the public, particularly members of the social media community that Emefiele currently has no twitter handle.
“We wish to state categorically therefore, that the twitter handles bearing the name and photographs of Emefiele are fake and targeted at misleading unsuspecting members of the public.
“Accordingly, we wish to advise all members of the social media community and the general public to be wary of the fake accounts and discountenance whatever message conveyed therein.”
