Kemi Adeosun was caught fumbling on some numbers on Twitter yesterday and the Finance minister was called out by Nigerians immediately.
Instead of the former Ogun commissioner for Finance to apologize for her error in calculation of numbers she earlier posted and also for tweeting that “recession is just a number”, she went on to release a statement, denying an account that has been tweeting all her official assignments since November 2015.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Honourable Minister does not own a twitter account,” Kemi said in a statement on Thursday. “The Twitter handle currently trending, and any other twitter handle presently in existence is not, and cannot be that of the Honourable Minister, as a twitter account has not yet been set up for her,” she added.
The account ‘s description was changed to “Parody” and then entirely erased by Friday morning.
