Presidency Disowns Twitter Comments Ascribed To Zahra Buhari

imageThe Presidency yesterday disowned the Twitter comments allegedly posted by Zahra Buhari, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the tweets were from an account falsely linked to Zahra Buhari.
According to him, the Twitter account was abandoned a long time ago by Zahra when it was compromised by hackers
The statement reads: “The attention of the Presidency has been drawn to unauthorised and unexpected tweets by an account falsely linked to Zahra Buhari, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Following enquiries by a few foreign missions on the raging online controversy about unsavoury comments against some foreign leaders purportedly made by her, we wish to state categorically that Zahra is indeed on Twitter but the offending handle @Zahra_Buhari has stopped being her own for a long time since it was compromised by hackers.
“Tweets by this handle are therefore not her own and should be disregarded and considered as the work of hackers seeking to cause mischief between this country and other friendly states.
“Zahra’s authentic handle is @ZmBuhari and any handle other than this on Twitter should be considered as fake and therefore fraudulent.
“It is also pertinent to state at this point that neither the wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari nor the other children are presently on Twitter, Facebook or the various other platforms.
“As they explore the possibilities on this new territory, we request the public to ignore the many accounts on various platforms in their names that currently exist. Such accounts, beside the authentic one cited above in the name of Zahra are unauthorised and therefore fake.”
