Buhari appears to be special ambassador for Indian app Koo

President Muhammadu Buhari appears to have become a special ambassador to Indian social media platform Koo as his image was featured on Koo’s social media advert with the app promising to provide “exclusive updates from him only on Koo App!”

The app Koo, similar to Twitter, emerged onto the Nigerian market in June. This was soon after the Nigerian government banned Twitter and its operations within the country.

Twitter was banned two days after the platform removed a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that threatened to punish regional secessionists in the South-East region of the country.

Koo’s popularity subsequently surged as official federal government social media platforms stopped tweeting and migrated to Koo.

Top government functionaries, presidential aides, agencies, and other pro-government individuals also took to Koo.

The Indian microblogging site has since moved in to cash in on the development, preparing to establish a physical presence in Nigeria while connecting with top influencers.

Koo co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna hinted from his Twitter handle:

“@kooindia is available in Nigeria. We’re thinking of enabling the local languages there too. What say?”

Within days of the Twitter ban, Koo was available on Apple and Google’s app stores and job openings had been posted on LinkedIn searching for local language speakers.
