MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday warned against social media accounts or groups claiming a connection to her office, particularly its Angat Buhay programs.

On Facebook, Robredo specifically said that the Twitter account “Angat Buhay New Government” and handle “@NewGovOrgABF” are not in any way associated with the Office of the Vice President (OVP).

“Hindi po konektado sa Office of the Vice President o kay VP Leni Robredo ang Twitter account na ‘Angat Buhay New Government o @NewGovOrgABF’,” she warned.

“Wala pong katotohanan ang mga lumalabas sa account na ito, na ang malinaw na layunin ay manlinlang at magpakalat ng maling impormasyon,” she added.

Robredo stressed that details of the Angat Buhay NGO (non-government organization) that she plans to launch after her term as vice president ends on June 30 could only be found on her official Facebook page. The Angat Buhay NGO is being established to become the biggest volunteer network in the country.

“Para sa mga opisyal na detalye at anunsyo ukol sa Angat Buhay NGO, tutok lamang po dito sa VP Leni Robredo Facebook page,” she said.

“Maging mapanuri at huwag basta maniniwala sa mga haka-haka, mga kwento o unverified information na nakikita online. Maraming salamat po!” she also said.

During the thanksgiving event of the Leni-Kiko tandem and slate at the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City on May 13, Robredo disclosed plans to create the Angat Buhay NGO which will help various sectors across the country.
