Twitter Ban: Buhari’s Aide, Bashir Ahmad Promotes Indian Social Media Platform ‘Koo App’

Following the suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria, Bashir Ahmad, a personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media, has urged Nigerians to join Koo App, an Indian-owned social networking platform.

On Friday, June 4, 2021, KanyiDaily reported that the Federal Government of Nigeria had halted Twitter operations in Nigeria indefinitely.

The government was forced to intervene, according to Lai Mohammed, because of “the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”

Ahmad, who had already registered a Koo App account, took to his Facebook page to invite his followers to join and engage with him on the new social media site.

“Just for trial to see how Koo works. Follow me!” Ahmad wrote.
