Presidential Transition Committee Raises Alarm Over False Twitter Account

According to the Presidential Transition Committee (PTC), there has been a parody Twitter account in circulation since 2020.

The PTC said the fake account ( @TransitionNgr ), has been in circulation before the establishment and inauguration of the council.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Director, Information for the Secretary to the Government of the Federation /Chairman, Presidential Transition Council, Willie Bassey on Sunday.

“PTC has nothing to do with the fake Twitter account handle, and wishes to state that approval for the establishment of the Presidential Transition Council was given by the President in February this year and was subsequently inaugurated by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation /Chairman of PTC, Boss Mustapha, thereby exposing their irresponsible and calculated attempt to disseminate inaccurate and tainted information to unsuspecting members of the public.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the authentic Twitter account of the Presidential Transition Council is @FGNPTC (FGN PRESIDENTIAL TRANSITION COUNCIL) (

“The public, by this release, should discountenance the fake Twitter account and use the official account handle of PTC for genuine and accurate information on the activities of the transition programme.

“PTC further adds that the activities of the Transition Council are on course as all Committee members are working assiduously for the success of the inauguration on 29th May 2023.”
