Femi Otedola Quits Twitter Over Impersonation

 

Nigerian Businessman, CEO of Zenon Petroleum and Gas Limited and chairman of Forte Oil Plc, Femi Otedola, has announced his early exit from mini-blogging site – twitter.

Nigerian businessman, entrepreneur philanthropist, who joined twitter some few months back was forced to exit when twitter failed to verify his handle and impersonators capitalised on it to put his image at risk threatening is business empire.

In a single tweet that has generated over 959 retweets and 1760 likes, Otedola announced his exit in this manner,”Good day to the online community. Due to the fraudulent and disingenuous exploitation of my persona on this platform, tweets from me on this account are suspended forthwith until I am verified by Twitter. Thank you. F.Ote$”
