SPOTTED: The ‘silly’ tweet Aregbesola should never have made

Rauf Aregbesola

Governor Rauf Aregbesola — or the handlers of his official Twitter handle — must, by now, be regretting a tweet that was meant to boost his goodwill but has only fetched him scorn.

On Saturday, the handle tweeted a photo of the Governor in his car, making the peace sign to a shoeless boy standing in front of a mud house, who was also making the same sign.

It was accompanied by Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s saying: “The soul is healed by being with children.”

However, Twitter users didn’t think Aregbesola did a thing to heal the boy’s soul or that of many children like him, nether did he do a thing to heal his own soul.

While a user told him to “delete” the tweet, another simply branded it “silly”.

Other reactions ranged from asking the governor to delete the tweet, to wondering why he didn’t disembark from his car to personally greet the boy.
