Swedish Embassy In Nigeria

Nigerians have a constitutional right to exercise their freedom of expression and a right to access of information. This must be respected. Safeguarding free, independent media and civic spaces for democratic voices is an important part of Sweden’s #DriveForDemocracy #TwitterBan

British Deputy High Commissioner in Abuja

All Nigerians have the right to freedom of speech and the responsibility not to misuse that right. Any action taken by Government must be measured, proportionate and not supress basic freedoms.

Freedom of speech, used responsibly online and off line, and access to reliable information are fundamental human rights protected by #Nigeria’s constitution and a cornerstone of democratic life around the world. (1/2) #TwitterBan

These #HumanRights should be fully protected, while preventing inflammatory rhetoric and hate speech that could fuel tension and conflict. (2/2) #TwitterBan #Nigeria

Nigerians voted a despot twice! What were they expecting? The man does not hear neither does he care. The good thing however is, censor Twitter as much as you can, you can't do shït about it cos it will still be there in your faces!

School kids kidnap has become the latest common happenings in a series of mishaps under buhari, but they fools didn’t hold press conferences. Their president was kicked in the face and they want to blow a vein LMAO. Despots with fragile egos

Nna mehnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

What started this whole issue? Bulhari threatened to bring another genocide to Igbo people just because they asking fo referendum to decide their future.


Now the entire world are distancing themselves from the zoo and from the dullard

The zoo must fall.

Meanwhile the picture below is Bulhari admiring a Biafra made gun they took in Awka during the war, reason why he so much fears the existence of Biafra.

Truth is, if the govt ever go to war with any region in this entity called Nigeria they will find it harder to get international corporation or support especially from European countries and American continent. Except for their jihadist brothers from the Middle East and that will bring more sympathy from European and American countries to the region at war with the govt.. This govt keeps proving and showing that those agitating have been true with all there claims and accusations they've leveled against the govt.. Nigeria is gone, we only waiting for the day it will be officially declared scattered.

Some Idiots believe Osibanjo is the best brain on this government. This is what you get when foolish people run a government!

Does the Govt put into consideration the capital flight that would leave Nigeria on VPN subscriptions?

Does the Govt put into consideration the ease of doing business associated with twitter to direct persons on twitter?

Does the Govt consider the employment of various direct and indirect persons on Twitter?

Does the Govt consider the bad image of free speech which directly impacts the stability and investor confidence of the nation?

Does the Govt consider the lack of trust of any published Govt stats due to this singular act?

Does the Fulani/Northern populace not understand this is an assumed direct representation of their kind in the future?

More sane countries need to come hard on this inept, senseless government. It boggles the mind how a single administration can be so clueless and out of tune with the will of the people. And when you see the views by the likes of Adamu Garba, you get to see a pattern of people who think through their anus...

Imagining what Buhari's core North will be like should Nigeria fragment, ovens fired at its highest heat will be cooler than the core North as ISWAP, Boko Haram, bandits etc who all happen to be their sons will over run them within the shortest possible time and they would flee towards the South for asylum but the borders will be closed against them, reason their insistence on "One Nigeria" because the South is the window that ventilates the core North and through which it breathes, anything less means suffocation.

Potential Nairaland data leak.

It appears this government is attempting to steal or access Nairaland sensitive data base.

I will soon be deactivating my account.

Exodus 14:13

But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.”

We're at the end.
