Heard the news of Buhari's ban on Twitter an hour or so after sending off TO SHOCK AND AWE to the print media. Kindly add my total lack of surprise at this petulant gesture, unbecoming of a democratically elected president.

If Buhari has a problem with Twitter, he is advised to sort it out between them personally, the way Donald Trump did, not rope in the right to free expression of the Nigerian citizen as collateral damage.

In any case, this is a technical problem Nigerians should be able to work their way around. The field of free expression remains wide open, free of any dictatorial spasms!

It's no longer news, that this country is beating the drum of anarchy.
Everyone should buckle up, speak up and act, no sitting on the fence.
Insecurity is on the rise, songs of secession in the atmosphere, unemployment on the increase, failed educational system, government is clueless from the Federal govt down to the local level, the Masses are helpless.
It is no time to sit on the fence and wait till it affects you.
Speak and act.

Dear Prof sir,

Buhari doesn't know what twitter is, don't waste your time trying to educate someone who can't even organize his own house and expect him to listen to you. I see buhari banning banks, telecoms, churches, markets, food...etc, I see the south successfully breaking out of Nigeria.

This I have seen.

Season of reactions. Buhari/APC govt have scored an own goal and going the way of communist China with this Twitter ban. It will definitely affect FDI and the image of the country. Nigerians can't wait for them to go.

Did they block Twitter from operating in Nigeria or block Nigerians from accessing Twitter?

Perhaps, this is the best time to see Panttireme and his acclaimed ingenuity in action.

Suddenly all these so called influential people have found their voices.

Where have you been since the prices of goods and commodities rose?
Where has Soyinka been since marauding herdsmen have been killing Nigerians?

Now the vampire of a President has bitten where it hurts EVERYONE they’re all claiming to care.

Nigeria deserves to burn into oblivion.

Buhari Is A Shame To The World, And Useless To The Nation, He Is Even A Disgrace To Nigeria. He Has Shown That He Is The Last Ilitrate To Rule A Nation.
this i have said, let him send his army over me for saying the truth if he like.

See his mouth, acting all sanctimonious.
When he was shamelessly campaigning for Buhari in 2015 what was he expecting?

A Prof that doesn’t know that a leopard never change its spots is that one a Prof?
