The Presidency has decried the alleged impersonation of Yusuf Buhari, the son of President Muhammadu Buhari, on social media.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Wednesday warned those perpetrating the illegality to stop forthwith.

According to him, it is not the first time such is happening as several illegal accounts have been opened in his name.

Adesina said, “It has been observed that social media accounts are being run in the name of the son of the President, Yusuf Buhari.

“The most recent is an Instagram account @ymbuhari, which has attracted thousands of followers, and which has been used to express opinions in Yusuf’s name without his knowledge”.

He, however, stated that the President’s son currently does not use any social media platform and therefore, warned the public to disregard any accounts opened in his name.

He also warned the public to disregard accounts impersonating other family members of the President.
