Another popular Social Media giant, Facebook has followed twitter and removed a post made on President Muhammadu Buhari’s official page.
The Nigerian leader made headlines a few days ago after Twitter removed a tweet from the President’s handle. The tweet which subtly threatened ‘Genocidal’ violence against the Igbos was removed by the platform for violating its terms and conditions. The action of Twitter did not go down well with the Nigerian government, subsequent,it banned the operations of Twitter in the country.
However, on Friday, Facebook also announced that it has removed the same post from its platform.
“In line with our global policies, we’ve removed a post from President Buhari’s Facebook page for violating our Community Standards against inciting violence. We remove any content, from individuals or organisations that violates our policies on Facebook.”, Facebook Spokesperson stated.
RENO OMOKRI PRAISES FACEBOOK,MOCKS BUHARI
Reacting to Facebook’s action, a former aide to ex- President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri lauded Facebook for taking down the President’s post .
“We did it it! Facebook has also taken down the tyrant’s genocidal post. We are grateful to Mark Zuckerberg. I am vindicated! When I asked my followers to report that post, many Buharists laughed at me. Who is laughing now. But it is still not enough.”
An elated Omokri urge the microblogging giant to take further step by totally suspending the official account of President Muhammad Buhari.
“We urge Facebook to permanently suspend Muhammadu Buhari like they did to Trump. Buhari is a bloodthirsty war monger that should be shut out of decent society! That way, other’s with genocidal tendencies will learn from the treatment meted out to him.” he wrote.
