The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has revealed why he stopped reading comments about him on social media.
In a video that surfaced online on Saturday, November 19, 2022, the former Lagos State governor can be seen saying he gets high blood pressure from abuses hurled at him on social media.
“I don’t read social media anymore. They abused hell out of me. If I read it, I get high blood pressure, I get angry it. I don’t read it, no. If I want to hear anything, my children or any of my workers will tell me this one say this one. If I’m tired I’ll say please, forget it.” he said.
Since the beginning of this election cycle, Tinubu has been a significant trending topic on social media, particularly on Twitter, where controversies surrounding his health, an alleged drug forfeiture in the United States, his educational credentials, and other issues have been hotly debated.
