Going further, he said that it would be adequately communicated through the right channels if the new chief of staff desires to have an account.
"DISCLAIMER: All the twitter accounts bearing Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff to President Buhari are fake, the new CoS doesn’t have an account on twitter or on any social media platform. If he wishes to have one, it will be communicated properly," the tweet read.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu has praised President Buhari for appointing Prof. Ibrahim Agboola Gambari as the new chief of staff.

According to him, Gambari has served Nigeria in many important positions.
Going further, he added that his intellect, broad experience and skills in administration and diplomacy have adequately prepared and equipped him for the important job he now has.
He said: "I congratulate Professor Gambari on his selection and commend President Buhari for making such a thoughtful and prudent choice at this crucial moment. Prof. Gambari will work competently and with dedication to help President Buhari advance his policy and governance priorities just as he did in the past when he served as Minister of External Affairs in the 1980’s.
"My personal knowledge of chief of staff Gambari is that he is an erudite man who knows and loves this country, who strongly believes in the Nigerian project & president’s change agenda.
"He is no stranger to our party, APC, and its progressive national vision. Over a long and illustrious career, Prof. Gambari has proved his mettle nationally and internationally. His resume takes a back seat to none."
