Ex-Minister Adoke denies congratulating Dino Melaye


A former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, SAN, has denied congratulating the Senator representing Kogi West in the Senate, Dino Melaye, on his re-election.
A statement by Mr Adoke’s lawyer, Victor Iorshenge, says the former Minsiter neither own nor operate a Facebook account.
Iorshenge says, “The attention of Mr. Mohammed  Bello Adoke SAN ( Our Client) has been drawn to a  congratulatory  massage to Senator Dino Malaye  on Facebook purportedly posted by him.
“This is to inform the general public and all Facebook users that our client does not own or operate a Facebook account and that  the said congratulatory massage did not emanate from him. 
“Our Client  therefore calls on the general public and Facebook users to disregard the said Facebook posting in it’s entirety as it is nothing but  the handiwork of fraudsters and  mischief makers.  
“Our Client  has since 2015 when he left public office maintained a personal policy of refraining from commenting on issues related to Nigerian politics and  this has not changed. 
“Our client has taken  appropriate steps to bring this infraction and illegality to  the attention of Facebook for immediate remedial action.”
