Nigerians beware: Walmart Nigeria isn’t on Twitter

by | Jan 8, 2016

Back in August of 2015, Walmart executives paid a courtesy visit to the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode to further affirm the giant retailer’s stance on establishing a presence in Nigeria.

Just yesterday, a tweet posted from a supposed official Walmart Nigeria account engaged Nigerians on Twitter.

The poll has received varying reactions from Nigerians.

However,  it turns out this account is a fake, as confirmed by the official Walmart global account. 

It is definitely advised that Nigerians on Twitter be warned.
