Marcel Niat Njifenji, Senate President has issued a statement, noting that he is not subscribed to any social media platform. The statement issued by the director of the Senate President’s cabinet on behalf of his boss, serves as caution to social media users who may be interacting with impostors on Facebook; wrongfully believing they are friends with the second personality of the state.

“Some malicious individuals have started to create and operate accounts on the social network, Facebook, on behalf of HE Marcel Niat Njifenji, President of the Senate. The profile of this high personality is illustrated by one of his photos in which he wears the senators’ scarf with the national colors, “the statement reads in part.

Going by the director of cabinet, these accounts are created by fraudsters with the intention to use them in extorting money from unsuspecting citizens in the name of the Senate President.

Senator Niat Njifenji’s cabinet director holds the communique is equally a warning to cyber crimals. “…the President of the Senate does not personally or by intermediary or mandated person, run an account or profile on Facebook or any other social network:” he states.
