Titi Amina Abubakar
Wife of former Nigeria’s Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, Hajiya Titi Amina Abubakar, has denied a Facebook post attributed to her, describing it as fake news.
Insisting that she does not operate social media accounts, Titi Abubakar vehemently dismissed the communication which she said relates to some political commentaries from me concerning political calculations in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the political ambitions of some individuals.
She said the social media post is malicious and put out to cause disaffection with some persons and embarrassment to her person.
In a statement made available to Prime Business Africa on Sunday, Mrs. Abubakar said, “I don’t operate social media accounts, what was attributed to me on Facebook is fake news.
“In view of a certain communication as it relates to some political commentaries from me concerning political calculations in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the political ambitions of some individuals, I want to state that it is not only fake news, it is absolutely not my style to pass such commentaries and thus did not authorize the post.
“I wish to state categorically that I do not operate any social media account.
“The Facebook page where the communication was posted does not belong to me, and after investigation, I am made to know that the page has been in existence for a while.
“The latest post on the page which portrays me making a controversial comment on politics within the PDP and political moves by an unnamed politician is malicious and put out to cause disaffection with some persons and embarrassment to my person.
Mrs. Abubakar urged the public, especially members of the PDP, to disregard this particular post and other posts from unverified and unreliable sources that can cause division within the party.
Her husband, Atiku Abubakar, was the presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 presidential election, coming second behind incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.
