Presidency opens new facebook page, deactivates other inactive social media pages

The Presidency has signed up on Facebook page, bringing the number of social media pages President Muhammadu Buhari is associated with to six. The media team is auditing the digital media presence of the President with a view to deactivating those that are no longer active.

Buhari has two accounts on Twitter, one on Facebook and another on Instagram. The Presidency, as an institution, owns an account on Twitter in addition to the newly-created Facebook page.
Some of the pages were signed up during the 2015 general elections. They were created as part of campaign tools of the President. After the elections, some of the accounts went dormant, but they have not been taken down.

On what the media team intends to do with the inactive accounts, Special Assistant to the President on Digital/New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, said an audit had commenced on Buhari’s social media platforms with a view to deactivating the redundant ones.

For now, only the newly-created Facebook page and @NGRPresident on twitter are functional. The two accounts, which are linked together, publish activities of the President and his vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and other redundant ones will be deactivated.
