President Muhammadu Buhari, has on Monday, officially returned back to Twitter, for the first time since the Federal Government lifted the ban on its operations in Nigeria, dailyexcessive learnt
Recall, that in January 2022, the Federal Government lifted the ban imposed on Twitter, in June 2020, after the President’s Civil War tweet was deemed inappropriate and deleted by the social media giant.
On his official return, President Buhari took to the platform to share photos of himself observing the Eid-el-Fitr prayer with the Muslim faithful, at the Mambila Barracks Parade Ground, in Abuja.
He also spoke about the fight against insurgency in the country.
He tweeted exactly: “After a period of fasting and reflection, this year, we have cause to welcome the occasion in hope. The battle waged against terrorists who falsely masquerade under the name of Islam is approaching its conclusion.
“The fight has been long and hard. Final victory is within sight. Boko Haram and its offshoots’ final embers are now fading. Last month, the leader of ISWAP was killed in an airstrike. Since the New Year, thousands of fighters have surrendered.
“The territories they used to occupy are now seeing the return of those who were forced to flee their barbarity. Normality is finally beginning to return to the Northeast. It is a long process. Yet it is one we are, together, now embarking upon.
“With the designation of bandit groups as terrorists, the challenges of banditry & kidnapping are being tackled differently in the north-west and north-central where the latest military acquisitions and armed forces are being fanned out across the region to thwart acts of terror.”
