Politics PDP Disowns Deji Adeyanju, Launches 4 Indigenous Language Twitter Handles



The Peoples Democratic Party said it now controls four indigenous language Twitter handles for interaction of its members and the general public.

In a statement on Wednesday, the party urged its members, supporters and the public to use the platforms for maximum interaction on the way forward for the party.

The party also disowned Deji Adeyanju saying it has no directorate called new media and no director of such a section.

The statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

According to the PDP, the twitter handles are

Igbo – @pdpnhqigbonig;

Yoruba – @pdpnhqyorubanig;

Hausa [email protected] and

Pidgin – @pdpnhqpidginnig.

“This is to integrate all our numerous members, teeming supporters and the general public on the new operations of the party in view of its people-oriented re-branding and rebuilding agenda,” it stated.

The PDP said its attention had been drawn to diverse comments regarding the closure of its previous official twitter handle on Sept. 5 and the launch of a new handle @officialpdpnig.

It said that it observed that `some elements’ were creating false social media accounts especially on Twitter and Facebook for some present and past leaders of the party.

“For the umpteenth time, we wish to reiterate that the National Chairman, Makarfi, has no Twitter Handle, and is not on any social media platform at all".
