Funke Akindele, an actress turned politician in Nigeria, has explained her decision to avoid using Twitter.
She said she stopped using the app because of insults, and she added that she was not scared of verbal abuse but had made the decision to be cautious.
While responding, Akindele said, on Thursday on her Twitter account.
A tweep, #apexproperties2, had asked Akindele why she had been absent from the platform saying.
The user asked, “Madam Funke Akindele i site you… longest time… you run away for us abi wot happen.”
Responding, Akindele said, “Dem too Dey insult people on this app so I stay off. How are you?”
Reacting to the response, another tweep, #Odun_is_my_name asked her if she was afraid of people with the tweet, “You? Afraid of people? No way!”
The film producer replied, “No I’m not afraid!! I’m just careful.”
Recall that Akindele was the running mate to Olajide ‘Jandor’ Adediran, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), during the March 18 election.
The PDP, however, lost the election to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the incumbent governor and candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
