Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has said he no longer read comments about him on social media.
Tinubu, who frequently updates his verified social media handles, said this in a video currently trending online.
“I don’t read social media anymore; they abuse the hell out of me. If I read it, I get high blood pressure and angry. I don’t read it, so if I want to hear anything; my children or my workers will say this one said this, and when I’m tired, I say please forget it!”
Tinubu, who has been under the spotlight in the ongoing campaign for the 2023 election, said social media gives him “angry”.
While rounding off his speech at his campaign flag-off in Jos on Tuesday, he suffered a slip of tongue as he momentarily referred to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) when he had his party in mind.
“…I hand over back to the chairman of the party before he disciplines me for leaving the President waiting and keeping him standing. We are calling, inviting the national chairman to invite the President. At least to close this part of the ceremony. Thank you, God bless you, God bless Nigeria. God bless PD…APC,” he had said.
This slip triggered outrage among the oppostion on social media as critics demarketed the ruling party’s candidate.
