Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

Micro blogging site, Twitter, has restored the verified account of Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, after external attempts made by person’s suspected to be hackers to gain unauthorised access to the account failed.

The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Mr Laolu Akande, had, on Saturday said, “there were failed external attempts to gain unauthorized access to the Vice President’s Twitter Account. Since, we have been in contact with Twitter, securing the account, and forestalling a reoccurrence. The VP will continue to actively communicate with our citizens.”

All through Saturday, the account seemed temporarily down, as the usual image of the VP on his handle had been removed with quite a number of tweets deleted and the blue badge introducing it as a verified account removed.

However, on Sunday, barely 24 hours later, the account has been been restored with all the features introducing it as the VP’s Twitter handle plus the blue badge restored.

Also, the account which had been inactive in the last 24 hours came alive with the VP sending his Sallah greetings to Nigerians, most especially the Muslim faithful wishing them Barka Da Sallah, a post which signals that the account has been fully restored.
