Zahra, the daughter of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of hacking into her Twitter account.
On her Twitter handle, she said the ruling party used somebody to gain an unlawful access into her account to post a grammatical blunder aimed at embarrassing her.
The aspiring first daughter, who now has a new account, said she was shocked that the PDP could stoop so low to gain a political advantage.
She said, “The PDP had someone hack into my Twitter account to post a grammatical blunder. This is so uncalled-for.
“Even if I tweeted a grammatical blunder, I didn’t say ‘There is God o’ like our First Lady said.”
She, however, did not give further details to buttress the allegation.
She had previously frowned on the actions of the party, saying Nigerians were no longer ready to tolerate its excesses.
Since her comeback, Zahra’s fans are pouring in by the second to reconnect with her on the new account – @ZahraBuhari. She has also become more active on the medium.
Introducing the account, she told her fans, “I am as lovely as my father’s lovely heart.”
The United Kingdom-based undergraduate, who shot into limelight earlier in the month when her photographs appeared on the social media, said people “now think I am faking in my own world.”
On Wednesday, she posted a series of tweets, insisting that Nigerians could not continue to endure the pains bad leadership has inflicted on them.
Noting that change was inevitable, she called on individuals to support her father to bring the desired change as the country approaches crucial general elections.
“Change is the only thing that is permanent. We need change.
“If school certificate defines a good president, don’t you think President Jonathan’s PhD ought to have fought insecurity and corruption,” she tweeted.
Zahra also sent photographs of a campaign train of the APC, saying, “This is how far we can go to get a change. Do not watch, make a move and vote for change.”
Zahra’s striking beauty had won her thousands of fans on her now-terminated Twitter handle -@zahra3 – following the release of her photographs by bloggers. But the young lady, who has become an instant celebrity, dumped the account, leaving her fans in the limbo.
Shortly before closing her former Twitter account, she had described the debate on the whereabouts of her father’s certificates as a “misplaced priority.”
Amid her soaring fame, some people had however warned that her sudden celebrity was a bad publicity for Buhari.
For instance, Arikor Ogonnaya argued that her overnight celebrity status would do her father more bad than good.
He also suggested that the fame she was getting was an indication that her father would not achieve the “change” he desires for the country.
“Your father is someone who has been hailed throughout the media as a spotless saviour; a sinless messiah and a guiltless saint. His ‘change’ mantra says so. For somebody who is vigorously trying to so ‘change’ Nigeria as he claims, his first port of call should be our attitudes, lifestyle and mentality. Having his daughter’s picture trending on Twitter isn’t the best way to begin such change.
“Politics, as you know it in ‘oyinboland’, has a totally different meaning in Nigeria. Here, politics is really ‘politicks’ translating into ‘poli’ –many, and ‘ticks’ – blood-sucking insects. Well, having your picture trending on social media is such a great avenue,” Ogonnaya noted.
