Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, on Thursday dismissed as fake a Twitter handle in her name saying that “recession is just a word.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Honourable Minister does not own a twitter account. The Twitter handle currently trending, and any other twitter handle presently in existence is not, and cannot be that of the Honourable Minister, as a twitter account has not yet been set up for her. It is obviously fake and does not represent the views and opinions of the Honourable Minister,” Festus Akanbi, Special Assistance on Media to the Minister said in a statement.‎

Akanbi also disclosed that “at no time did the Honourable Minister, who addressed the media immediately after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council, make such a statement.

The Minister has consistently demonstrated empathy for the plight of Nigerians hard hit by dwindling oil prices and the impact on the economy.

“This administration is known for integrity and has never hidden the true situation of things from Nigerians, rather it has looked for ways to alleviate the hardships through social intervention programmes.

“We therefore enjoin all well-meaning Nigerians to disregard these spurious allegations against the Honourable Minister of Finance. We remain committed to reflating and resetting the economy on a path towards sustainable growth.”
