Nigerians have criticized President Muhammadu Buhari and his media aides for locking the comment section on his Twitter account.
The president announced the launch of the Itakpe to Warri railway line. However, the comment section was closed, leaving Nigerians unable to comment on the matter.
Yesterday I had the honour of commissioning the standard gauge railway line from Itakpe to Warri, via the steel town complex of Ajaokuta, an important link for Nigeria’s economy, as the Central rail line. Yet another demonstration of our commitment to infrastructure revival.

While some criticized the decision to close the comment section, others said the president may be tired of the scepticism of Nigerians.
