The former two- time Vice President of Nigeria might have opened his Twitter back in 2010 but up till recently, he’d never been this interactive with his 16,000 followers on the micro-blogging social platform.
Atiku Abubakar has even made his first celebrity tweet buddy; guess who? It’s none other than the Twitter-ubiquity Don Jazzy. While responding to a follower who had asked why he doesn’t ‘share recharge cards’ like the Mavin Records label boss, Atiku simply responded ‘But I’m not as rich as Don Jazzy #smile‘.
Interestingly, Don Jazzy tweeted at Atiku after confirming from his (Atiku) daughter if the account was run by her father. ‘Hellooo @MeenaAbu is this @Atiku really daddy’s account? Abeg hail him for me o. tell him to ignore dis kids on my TL o. lol’.
Atiku also replied the producer; ‘Thank you, @DONJAZZY. You are an inspiration and role model for your generation. Keep flying high‘.
