Adams Oshimhole: “I hold Governor Seyi Makinde In High Esteem, No Reason Whatsoever To Privately, Or Publicly, Denigrate Him”

Former Edo state governor, Adams Oshimhole, in a statement issued on Sunday by his media aide, Victor Oshioke, has distanced himself from the tweet credited to him that insinuated that he (Oshimhole) called the incumbent Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, ‘an overhyped social media governor.’


Oshimhole through his media aide, Oshioke, said, the tweet, which “originated from a twitter account @A_Oshiomhole” on January 20, 2022, credited to the ex Edo state governor, was concocted by an unknown twitter handler, who is disguising him/herself as Adams Oshimhole.


“The attention of H.E Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has been drawn to a series of tweets from a twitter account @A_Oshiomhole, commenting on recent national issues. Specifically, there was a tweet that originated from this account on January 20, 2022, which seem to insinuate that H. E. Seyi Makinde, Executive Governor of Oyo State is an “Overhyped Social Media Governor.”


Spokesman Oshioke stated that,

“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole holds H. E Governor Seyi Makinde in high esteem, and has no reason whatsoever, to privately or publicly denigrate him.”


Oshioke also confirmed that,

“Our investigations have further revealed that, there are other fake twitter accounts, illegally opened with Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s name and photographs.”


He therefore advised the general public to shun all tweets from the under listed Twitter accounts credited to Adams Oshimhole.


In the words of Oshioke,

“We wish to alert the general public that this twitter account is fake as it is not operated by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole or any of his aides.


“Let it be on record that all tweets that have originated from this account or will originate from it in the future do not represent the opinions or sentiments of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.”


“Some of them are: @adamsoshiomhole, @Oshiomhole, @adamsosh, @_adamsoshiomole, @adamsOshiomhol, @Adamsoshiomol4, @Adamsoshiomol5”


“Any tweets originating from the above fake accounts should be disregarded as they do not represent the opinions or sentiments of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.”


“For the avoidance of doubt, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s official handle which will be verified soon is @aoshiomhole.”
