Following the backlash on a newly-registered Twitter handle “Jimoh Ibrahim” on Twitter over the weekend and earlier today (read here), Ondo State governorship aspirant Jimoh Ibrahim has denied owning or managing the social profile, saying that those behind the handle are his enemies.
Via a statement released by his chief of staff, Bankole Betiku, the businessman said:
This is to inform the general public, our followers and good people of Ondo state that our candidate and the sole one for PDP in Ondo state as at today Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim CFR have never operated a Facebook account nor a twitter page. His [sic] an international business man and politician so he may not have enough time to waste on such platform.
The entire episode on the twitter handle going on with his name and picture is false and handwork of those not too comfortable with his declaration for the next gubernatorial election in Ondo state. If the enemies like, they should go ahead and clone another Jimoh Ibrahim.our conviction and ambition remains intact.
Coincidentally, the “enemy” Twitter handle has stopped tweeting since morning.
