Presidency Cries Out On Yusuf Buhari’s Impersonation On Instagram



The Presidency on Wednesday raised the alarm over the alleged impersonation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf on social media.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina raised the alarm in reaction to a fake social media handle in the name of Yusuf.

Adesina warned that Yusuf has no social media handle, hence the public should disregard such.

He said in a statement entitled, “Yusuf Buhari Being Impersonated On Instagram.”

The statement reads, “It has been observed that social media accounts are being run in the name of the son of the President, Yusuf Buhari.

“The most recent is an Instagram account @ymbuhari, which has attracted thousands of followers, and which has been used to express opinions in Yusuf’s name without his knowledge.

“This is to inform the general public that Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari is not on any social media platform. The public is, therefore, advised to disregard such handles and pages, while those perpetrating the illegality are advised to stop forthwith, as it amounts to impersonation.

“The same advice goes to those running other pages and handles impersonating other members of the family of the President.”
