I Don’t ‘Facebook’ Account, says Ike Ekweremadu

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has cried out over fraud being perpetrated in his name by alleged impostors.

Ekweremadu said the impostors opened fake facebook accounts in his name with intention of defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.

Ekweremadu, who raised the alarm yesterday through a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, warned his teeming supporters and members of the public not to have anything to do with any of such facebook accounts, as they have absolutely nothing to do with him or his office.

He said the impostors are planning to use his scholarship scheme and other empowerment programmes to defraud members of the public.

The statement entitled “Senator EKweremadu Has No Facebook Account,” reads in part that “The attention of the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate has been drawn to the activities of impostors who open facebook accounts in the name of His Excellency, the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu (CFR).

“Their intents are to engage in shady deals and defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

“Our teeming supporters and members of the public are hereby warned not to have anything to do with any of such facebook accounts, as they have absolutely nothing to do with Senator Ike Ekweremadu or Office of the Deputy President of the Senate.

“Distinguished Senator Ike Ekweremadu has no facebook account and anyone dealing with or communicating with anyone who claims to be the Deputy President of the Senate on any matter, including contracts, appointments, scholarships, sponsorship, etc is certainly doing so at his or her own risk. The person is obviously dealing with fraudsters.

“His scholarship scheme and other empowerment programmes are handled by the Ikeoha Foundation, a non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation he founded in 1997.”
