Suddenly the account's bio changed into a parody account and they still thought it was her account changed into parody to cover up what she said about the ongoing recession.

“The attention of the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, has been drawn to a fake Twitter handle in her name, saying that ‘recession is just a word.”

It is obviously fake and does not represent the views and opinions of the minister.

“Also at no time did the minister, who addressed the media immediately after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council, make such a statement.”
