Aisha Buhari’s twitter handle deactivated

The Twitter handle of Nigeria’s First lady, Aisha Buhari, has been deactivated.

This comes hours after the Buhari-led government announced the suspension of the micro-blogging site’s operations in the country.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, citing the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.

A quick search on Twitter for her handle shows it has been deactivated.

The Federal Government of Nigeria had earlier today announced the suspension of Twitter operation in the most populous black nation.
