Co-founder and chief executive officer of BudgIT, Oluseun Onigbinde, has deactivated his Twitter account moments after news of his appointment into President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration broke.

News of Mr Onigbinde’s appointment as technical adviser (budget and planning) under the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning broke on Friday.


Onigbinde is known to have been vocal in his criticism of Buhari’s administration.

The BudgIT boss has since deactivated his Twitter account which he used in criticising the government before his appointment.

Nigerians on Twitter have appeared divided over the development.
