Social Media Impostors Are Trying To Run Me Down, Peter Obi’s Running Mate Laments

The vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, says that some impostors on social media platforms have been spreading wrong information about him.

Baba-Ahmed, who said he had been battling impostors for long, said that things got worse when he became the running mate to the Labour Party’s standard bearer, Peter Obi.

Baba-Ahmed said, “Impostors had, right from the inception of the various social media platforms, opened accounts in my name without my knowledge or approval. I wrote several complaints accordingly, which were never attended to satisfactorily.

“This situation remained for nearly a decade, and I decided to be inactive on the platforms till my complaints were satisfactorily attended to. Ever since indications began to appear about my joining the Labour Party, more impostors hurriedly opened more accounts in my name, in most cases misspelled or in the wrong format.”

The Labour Party candidate said some of the disseminated information was to set him against legitimate and established responsible religious organisations.

“I, hereby, dissociate my humble self from the creation, ownership, and operation of any such social media accounts and equally declare that all exchanges and communications therefrom are without my knowledge or input in any way whatsoever

“I call on the social media platforms owners, creators, and operators to immediately realise the dangers their highly valued technologies portend in society and quickly responsibly rise to the challenge of preventing further creation and use of fake accounts.

“Peter Obi’s growing fortunes have become such a bitter pill for some Nigerian retrogressive status quo politicians to the extent of apparently committing huge amounts of money in creating and spreading falsehood in the name of politics,” he said.
