A certain parody Twitter account (@SegunObasanjo) associated with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, may have been deactivated from the social networking platform.
According to Punch, investigation shows that the account, which was still active last weekend, was removed from Twitter on Tuesday.
The handle was largely responsible for most of the recent political spat between Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan as it enjoyed regular visits by prominent politicians and journalists, who saw it as a useful source of information.
It was learnt, last weekend, that the anonymous tweeter(s), who were obviously responding to the reactions that trailed Obasanjo’s exit from PDP, attacked the former Minister of Aviation and Director of Media/Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, describing him as a “wrecker” of democracy.
“Fani-Kayode is a democracy wrecker, who is very fluent in stupidity. Give him food, and he will sing and do ‘shoki’ dance for you,” the tweet said.
In reaction to the tweet on Monday, Obasanjo reiterated that he was not on Twitter or Facebook having closed the accounts he maintained on the platforms earlier.
He said, “Let me say that nemesis will catch up with anyone doing this. It is illegal and criminal. If I have to pass any message to the good people of Nigeria, I know how to go about it with no controversy.”
