Will Buhari Learn
President Mohammed Buhari

For the second time in a week, micro blogging site, Twitter, has penalised President Muhammadu Buhari for making inciteful and genocidal comments.

On Thursday evening, the micro blogging site pulled down a video of Buhari, wherein he threatened to deal with youths of the South-East.

The video was deemed genocidal.

The video was initially posted on the official handle of the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, @NGRPresident, where Buhari warned that ‘rude shock’ awaits unpatriotic elements promoting insurrection and burning critical national assets across the country.

In the video, Buhari noted the role he played alongside other Nigerian military officers in the Nigerian Civil War of 1966-70, which led to the murder of over three million Igbos.

The president’s video was to address the attacks on INEC facilities in the region. The tweets transcribing the president’s address were earlier taken down by the social media app on Wednesday.

Earlier, Twitter had seen no wrongdoing in its response to some of those who marked the tweet as genocidal and reported it as a violation of its policy, as the social media company took down the offending tweet.

The presidency had complained that the app was displaying double standards by ignoring tweets it deemed inciting from the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, as well as others made during the #ENDSARS protest, which it claimed led to the destruction of government properties.
