To celebrate Eid-el-Fitr, President Muhammadu Buhari has used Twitter for the first time since the federal government lifted the restriction on the microblogging platform.

TheLeadng reports that in June 2021, the federal government announced an indefinite suspension of Twitter’s operation after the platform deleted tweets by Buhari who had threatened to treat members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the “language they understand”.

However, the restriction was lifted on January 13 after talks with the social media service which lasted months

Buhari in a series of tweets spoke of how the fight against Boko Haram has been long and hard, but said victory is within sight.
