Falana: Twitter Ban A Rehearsal Of FG’s Plan To Gag Media by Kwanza: 10:44pm On Jun 04
Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), says the decision of the Federal Government to suspend Twitter shows that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has suspended Chapter IV of the 1999 Constitution.

Falana said this during a chat with The PUNCH shortly after the Federal Government announced that it had suspended Twitter indefinitely.

The human rights lawyer argued that the suspension is also at variance with the Freedom of Information Act which seeks to expand information and access to it.

The senior advocate said he was sure that Buhari’s regime would soon ban international news networks like CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera.

Falana said, “This act has confirmed the suspension of Chapter IV of the constitution. Very soon, Nigerians will be restricted to NTA and the FRCN as the only source of information. Media like Channels TV and others have been fined for embarrassing the government and they may be proscribed soon.

“The decision of the NBC to impose fines on media houses based on an illegally amended code of the Broadcasting Code. It is a rehearsal of the imminent proscription of local media organisations that publish anything considered defamatory or seditious by the government.

“With what has happened to Twitter, other media houses like CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera will also be suspended.”

FG is a Modafucker. Buhari is not the one taking this decisions, To tell you all the Truth, Buhari is just a figure head ruler who was just put there as a front so as to deceive Nigerians to the reality of the Main People Ruling Us.

See let me tell you all a Secret, Everything happening in the Southeast are all well Planned Chaos by the Power of the Northern Cabal who are the one telling Buhari what to do.
But do you all know the Funniest thing; They are shooting theirselves in the Leg badly.
Mark my Words everybody, There won't be an election come 2023. That's for Sure.

Before I go, Know this and know Peace, Ahmed Gulak was assassinated intentionally in Imo by the same people controlling Buhari so as to have a reason to burn Southeast but alas na Failure go be their Position.

I Sign Out.

While I support him to agree the FG eers in banning twitter.

FG banned twitter because they deleted the president's tweet which is also bad, cause they played ostrich a dangerous game with an unevolved sapien.

Not because there is a conspiracy, I doubt they would have banned the site with no cause. As it stands they have a valid reason, just not done in the right way (an improper nationally embarrassing, becoming behaviour).

With all due respect special commendations to the Igbos who saw this disaster in 2015 and refused to support it!

The other 2 major regions voted out of sophistication(foolishness) and religious /tribal affiliation (foolishness).

The funny part is the silence of the sophisticated people in all this. I’m
Waiting for what Osibanjo - the wisest Yoruba man on earth, has to say.

May God never allow the wisdom and resilience of the Israelis and Igbos run dry!

I personally warned Nigerians not to allow a coup plotter to be their president. They said he is a changed democrat.



All social media will soon be banned in Nigeria.

To think the idi0t national assembly and governor's are shouting constitution review and this is happening at the same time tells me there is no governance, respect for the constitution, and rule of law in Nigeria.

It’s now crystal clear NIN registration policy was part of their plan to control social media...

Now lie Muhammad will die a happy man, he is about to achieve his goal “regulating social media”

With NIN linked to your sim, they will easy access to bully any internet users that criticize them

Nigerians deserve the leaders rulers they get, come 2023 they will still vote for another oppressor.
