Datti Baba-Ahmed, the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has expressed worries over social media impostors.

The 46-year-old economist and founder of Baze University on Monday cited that the situation worsened immediately after he was announced as Peter Obi’s running mate.

Baba-Ahmed, revealed to journalists in Abuja that the fame came with its consequence, stating that the “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 is misspelt or in the wrong format.

He, however, called on Nigerians to disregard any exchange or communications from the impostors.

Baba-Ahmed said, “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.

He noted that Peter Obi’s growing fortunes have become such a bitter pill for some Nigerian retrogressive status quo politicians.”
