Buhari Loses One Hundred Thousand Twitter followers on Twitter as Omokri Starts #UnFollowBuhari
The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has lost 100,000 Twitter followers in just three hours as the media aide to ex-President Jonathan, Reno Omokri , started a hashtag campaign, #UnfollowBuhari .
At exactly 5PM GMT, Mr Omokri had tweeted via his verified Twitter handle as follows:
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!
It was noticed that, President Buhari had 3.5 million followers before the campaign took off, then three hours later, his following members had reduced to 3.4 million followers.
Announcing the breakthrough, Mr Omokri, also known with his #BuhariTormentor hashtag, tweeted as follows:
When I started the #UnfollowBuhari campaign as part of my #EndSARS protest, some laughed. Well, look. In just 1 hour, we have reduced Buhari’s following by 100,000. Never underestimate your influence. When Nigerians wake up, government will be afraid of us!
