The Twitter account of David Hundeyin, a controversial Nigerian investigative journalist and a supporter of the Labour Party presidential candidate, has been restricted on Twitter for claiming President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is from Guinea.
Hundeyin on Saturday, April 15, 2023, in a post alleged that Tinubu had dual citizenship in Nigeria and Guinea.
He claimed that Tinubu may have committed perjury, sparking a social media frenzy.
In response, Twitter locked his account and stated that it was due to the “posting of private information” without the subject’s permission.
According to Twitter’s Private information and media policy, “You may not publish or post other people’s private information without their express authorization and permission. We also prohibit threatening to expose private information or incentivizing others to do so”.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, defending Tinubu, said Nigeria’s constitution allows you to have dual citizenship, dismissing Hundeyin’s claim.
During a Channels Television interview on Sunday, Fashola said, “The last time I checked, I think the Nigerian constitution allows you to have dual citizenship, doesn’t it?
“What does his citizenship have to do with the results of the election?” He asked.
