Wikipedia suspends Tinubu’s page after multiple editing


Wikipedia editors have locked the profile page of the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, for “persistent vandalism” on the platform.

Wikipedia locks Tinubu’s page after his age is edited 84 times

The Wikipedia page shows details of the life, education, career and personal information of the APC Chieftain.

Tinubu celebrated his birthday on March 29, 2021, and a colloquium was held to mark the day as is customary.

But many Nigerians believe he is older, and there have been numerous reports in the media that the Jagaban of Borgu is much older than he claims.

Following doubts about his age, numerous accounts took to Wikipedia to edit Tinubu’s age from 69 to 79.

According to his public records, Tinubu turned 69 but his Wikipedia page initially said he was 79.

A Twitter user drew attention to the age disparity which then sparked a series of viral tweets.
