Jimoh Ibrahim disowns Twitter account, says he never insulted Jonathan

Businessman and politician Jimoh Ibrahim has said he did not insult former President Goodluck Jonathan as widely reported.

A tweet from a Twitter account purportedly belonging to the businessman had generated heat .

But in a statement he personally signed on Thursday, Ibrahim said he held Jonathan in high esteem and couldn’t have hurled insults at him.

He also dissociated himself from similar attack on a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, who was the Director of the Goodluck Jonathan’s Campaign Organisation for the 2015 general elections.

Ibrahim said, “My attention has been directed to certain statements purportedly issued by me through a ‎Twitter account in which invectives were hurled on ex-President Jonathan. In the same vein, my attention was also drawn to the fact that such vituperation had also been directed at Chief Femi Fani-kayode.

‎“I wish to reiterate that I do not own or maintain any Twitter account either directly or by proxy. Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan is a brother and a quintessential gentleman and I hold him in high esteem. Chief Femi Fani-Kayode is a bosom brother and friend of utmost regard.

“The general public is hereby put on notice to disregard any statements emanating from the said fake Twitter account.”
