Buhari Lost 100,000 Followers On Twitter In 3 Hours


When the #EndSARS protest started a few days ago everybody thought it is just another social media campaign against the ruling party. The excesses of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad had gotten to the crescendo where the ordinary Nigerian believes it is either now or never.

The social media campaign took a new twist when Reno Omokri added another #UnfollowBuhari.

Reno Omokri tweeted “Dear Nigerians, If we all mean business with this #EndSARS movement, let’s send a strong message to General @MBuhari. He has 3.5 million followers. If we all stop following him and he sees his Twitter following drop by 1 million, he will sit up. Who is with me? Let’s go there!”

As at that time, President Buhari had 3.5 million followers.

A few hours later the number of followers of President Buhari dropped to 3.4 million. This actually showed that the power of social media cannot be underestimated.
