Nigeria’s Buhari follows 4 presidents and Trump isn’t one of them

President Buhari has only tweeted 2,776 times (as at March 20, 2018) and has only liked two tweets since he joined Twitter in 2014.

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is not the most active Twitter user having joined in December 2014 but he takes some tweets more important than others.

Buhari follows 19 individuals that include four African presidents namely, Dr John Magufuli of Tanzania, Macky Sall of Senegal, Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Ameena Gurib-Fakim of Mauritius.

From the list of the individuals, who Buhari is following despite having 1.38million followers on the social networking platform, it’s obvious the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump isn’t so important to him on Twitter afterall.
