Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity to Aisha Buhari, Aliyu Abdullah, has thrown a distasteful jab against Nigerians who are angered by the federal government’s suspension of Twitter operations in the country.
In a Facebook post he made on Sunday, June 6, Abdullah described the outraged Nigerians as wailers and reminded them that things are more expensive in other countries like Ghana.
“Dear Mr. Wailer, Before you relocate to Ghana because of Twitter suspension, I wish to humbly and respectfully remind you that a litre of petrol is N393, bottle of Cock is N300 and bag of rice is N48,000 in Ghana. Best regards,” he wrote.
Following the federal government’s announcement of a Twitter suspension, Abdullah’s principal, Aisha Buhari on Saturday deactivated her Twitter account.
“I will be deactivating my twitter account for now. Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria,” she wrote before deactivating her account.
