Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the news that President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari has been named by Forbes as the 4th richest child of a sitting president with a net worth of $2.3bn US dollars.
The news which is apparent fake has been trending on news platforms as a simple search of the keywords “Yusuf Buhari” didn’t yield those results. This is why some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to “crucify” those who believed the news and have been sharing it, various social media platforms.
I've always said ppl who have no sense shld sometimes pretend they have. All it takes any sensible person is about 2 mb data 2 verify frm Forbes site. Dere is no where on Forbes website dt Yusuf Buhari is mentioned. I don't knw why some people wasted money going 2 school sef. pic.twitter.com/j42yhgmsqj

Are we not doomed as a country to think that some youth believed the Yusuf Buhari BS. Are we using our brains in this country at all. Just Google this thing and that's all. SMH. @IsuphJt
