‘Why Buhari Emerged African President of the Year’, DAAR Communications Reacts to Social Media Concerns

DAAR Communications Plc, parent company of Africa Independent Television (AIT) has clarified its award of African President of the Year to President Muhammadu Buhari at the 3rd DAAR Awards on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at the International Conference Center (ICC), Abuja.

Following President Buhari’s announcement as the recipient of the award, some Nigerians took to the social media to express their displeasure and anger considering President Buhari had lost a Twitter poll conducted for the same award category. The President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame won the Twitter poll.

Several Twitter users took to Twitter on Monday to raise concerns about President Buhari bagging the award.

But in a statement on Monday, DAAR Communications Plc said the social media polls constitute only 30% of the criteria for the awards. The statement was released on the official Twitter handle of AIT.
