The Federal Government has said that the tweet made from the Ministry of Finance’s verified handle, begging SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk for ventilators was made in error.
Special Adviser to the Finance Minister on Media and Communications, Yunusa Tanko Abdullahi made this known in a disclaimer issued following the backlash from Nigerians.
Abdullahi said that the post was unauthorised and therefore has been brought down.
“An unauthorised post was made on the verified Twitter handle of the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning.
“The fact of the post is regrettable because of which it is brought down. We have made sure our internal processes are strengthened that such doesn’t happen again.
“The error is highly regrettable,” he tweeted.
