Some Nigerians are frowning at the Presidency for using its official and verified twitter handle to tweet about the alleged rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
VANTAGE NEWS reported that the Presidency on Wednesday denied rumours that Buhari and Tinubu are currently not enjoying the best of relationship.
See reactions below:
621 schools have been closed so far in Northern Nigeria as a result of insecurity,there is an ongoing clash between ESN and soldiers/police in the SE with dozens killed.But the President feels addressing the rumour of a rift between him and Tinubu is more important than all these pic.twitter.com/OMLjynh66G

I don't understand the rationale for this nonsensical statement. Tinubu is not a public official under the Nigerian Constitution and his relationship with the president is not a matter of state.
Next time, please save your APC party issues for your APC newsletters. https://t.co/1bqzzda86F

With all the insecurity issues and the killings going on, what presidency Twitter handlers can think of tweeting is Rift About Tinubu??

This from the Presidency's handle?
What happened to APC's official page?

You're desecrating this revered office, Mr handler. Leave Tinubu and Buhari to address their problems with their personal verified handles.

Hmmm..it's funny how the "presidency" is twitting "no rift" just after Tinubu donated 50 Million. It seems he has appeased the "gods". BTW why is this not on Buhari's page. You guys just find away to break your own records. "kontinu"

Wow!! I remember this song by Ludacris "How low can you go"
HOW CAN THE HANDLE OF THE PRESIDENCY BE TWEETING ABOUT A RIFT BETWEEN TWO INDIVIDUALS???????
Y'all should be serious for once. Please!! Let Buhari's personal tweeter handle do that not this one. 🤦🏿♂️🤦🏿♂️

Nigeria is in shambles and our Government is concerned about personal relationship between to political allies that we all know their target. Nigerians are older than this up up your games mtcheew 🚶🚶

This shameful for this being done with a presidential handle. It doesn't speak well. If Buhari and Tinubu has scores to settle he should do that with his personal handle not from the presidency handle. Well I'm not suprised.

Jeez this people don't have any single shame , so you guys will comfortably use the presidency handle to discuss your personal problems but keep mute on every important affairs that concern it citizen's

How is a "rift" between Buhari and Tinubu a national issue, that the Presidency will use her official handle to tweet about?
When I become the president, I'll dismiss people for this kind of sheer mediocrity.
