He went on to say that such abusive comments usually make him angry, so he’s decided to stop reading social media posts.

The APC presidential candidate was asked how he keeps up with online trends, and he said that typically, he relies on his kids or any of his employees to tell him what has been said about him on social media. When the comments become overly critical, he simply tells them to forget about it.

Tinubu’s phrase “I no longer read social media. They treated me horribly.If I read it, my blood pressure rises and I become enraged.No, I don’t read it. My children or any of my employees will tell me this one if I want to hear it.I will request that you forget it if I am tired.”

The presidential candidate has been a major trending topic on social media since the start of this election cycle, particularly on Twitter where controversies surrounding his health, alleged drug related forfeiture in the United States, educational qualifications among others have been heavily debated.
