Buhari Returns To Twitter On Sallah Day, Nigerians React

After months, President Muhammadu Buhari sent his first tweet on the microblogging network Twitter on Monday, May 2.

On June 5, 2021, the Nigerian government issued an official ban on the functioning of Twitter in the country.

The prohibition was lifted on January 13, 2022, after months of criticism and talks.

President Buhari has declined to use the bird app, despite the fact that several of his aides and government officials have done so since January.

The Nigerian leader, on the other hand, sparked a storm of criticism today after using the bird app to wish Muslims a happy Eid El Fitr in 2022.

President Buhari publishes a thread on the Sallah Day message in which he congratulates the Muslim faithful.

He said that normalcy is slowly returning to the northeastern area of the nation, which has been heavily impacted by militants.

Buhari also praised his government, stating that the special operations to combat crude oil theft and illicit oil bunkering in the South-South are yielding excellent results, with millions of unlawfully processed goods confiscated and illegal refineries demolished.

President Buhari has once again decried the alarming surge in criminal acts in the South East that target law enforcement and public infrastructure.

He accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) of being the perpetrators, but told us that the government is working to clear the region of the organization.
