The wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari has followed the pattern of her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari by deactivating her Twitter account after the Federal Government placed it on suspension yesterday.
In a tweet that has been deleted on Twitter, Aisha announced the deactivation, losing also the about one million people who followed her.
“I will be deactivating my twitter account for now. Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria,” she tweeted.
In a surprise move that has been roundly condemned by many Nigerians, Nigeria’s information minister Lai Mohammed announced the suspension of Twitter.
He attributed the action to what he called ” the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.
Mohammed on Wednesday had condemned Twitter after Twitter police deleted two tweets made by President Buhari, in which he said he would shock arsonists and insurrectionists, bent on bringing down his government.
He also said his government would give a civil war treatment to insurrectionists in the eastern part of the country, who have been attacking police stations and INEC offices.
