Buhari Blocks Nigerians, Others From Commenting At His Twitter Account


The intolerance of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led adminiatration has once again come to play as the president has blocked the comment section for tweets on his verified Twitter account, @MBuhari.

Twitter had introduced the moderation tool in May 2020, to allow users control trolls, irrelevant, insulting or disagreeable comments on their posts.

A check on Buhari’s Twitter page showed that the President can only have one-sided conversations on the social media platform.

This, however, is not the first time tweets by Buhari could not be replied to.

A check showed that the President blocked Nigerians from commenting on his Twitter posts in September and November 2020.

Buhari has also since stopped people from tagging him on another social media platform, Instagram.

All the tweets he sent out from January 15, 2021 could no longer be commented on by Nigerians who always took advantage of the app to express their grievances or support for government policies.

An attempt to reply to his latest post announcing the sacking of service chiefs was not successful.

A message from twitter popped up saying only those mentioned in the tweet can reply.
