Governor Seyi Makinde Reacts To Twitter Ban By Federal Government by drinoayo: 10:27am On Jun 05
The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has reacted to a ban on social media platform, Twitter by President Muhammadu Buhari's government, Igbere TV reports.

On Friday evening, the Nigerian government announced that it will be suspending all Twitter operations in Nigeria. This development is coming a day after the platform deleted a tweet and a video from the President's official handle.

President Buhari had issued a tweet threatening genocidal violence on the South-East over its rising Insecurity.

Reacting to the suspension, Makinde tweeted;
“Statement by Governor Seyi Makinde Regarding the Suspension of Twitter’s Operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government

It has become imperative for me to release a statement regarding the suspension of Twitter’s operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government.

As leaders, we should go beyond emotional reactions to issues and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead and our international ratings socially and economically.

Twitter has become the platform for young people and indeed all Nigerians to exercise their fundamental right to express and publish an opinion. They use the platform to complain, argue and give feedback to government and its agencies who in turn, use these to improve policies.

This is a fundamental point that should be kept in mind as we debate the necessity of this suspension.

We should also remember that Twitter has gone beyond a source of communication for many of our hardworking youths in Nigeria. It has become a source of livelihood for many, irrespective of their political affiliations or religious leanings.

Nigerian youths and digital communications organisations earn a living from being able to use the platform to post communications on behalf of their clients.

Others who may not have physical stores also rely on Twitter to give visibility to their products and services.

Furthermore, I believe the Federal Government should be actively interested in how certain policies and action will affect investor confidence.

I, therefore, use this medium to appeal to the Federal Government to reverse this suspension for the greater good of Nigerians.”

As leaders, we should go beyond emotional reactions to issues and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead and our international ratings socially and economically.

This reminds me of Iran emotional reaction that backfired on them.
After Trump killed their General
On 8 January 2020, a Ukrainian plane was carrying iran and Ukraine passengers from Iran to kyiv, Ukraine.
It was shot down shortly after takeoff by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

Because they were so emotional that they couldn't reason with their heads.
They saw a plane flying and thought it was USA plane.
Without confirming they launch missoe on the plane. Only to find out it was a Ukrainian plane carrying Iranians and Ukrainians.

They don't reason first
They just burst out emotion and it later backfires on them. Na their way

cool




Buhari should have delegated people to go to twitter headquarters and dialogue with them showing the effects of civil unrest, people who had died since the whole saga and why tough measure is needed to forestall another Boko Haram ISWAP crisis

EndSARs loss is an example of why we must be careful of another civil unrest

Trump's ousting and government change is also an example why Social media especially Twitter shouldn't have absolute power

A very wrong move from Pmb. The Dss/sss should lock up all the advisers of the President beginning from Garba Shehu and Femi Adeshina. Pmb has publicly stripped himself naked with this move. The needful should be done because when the chips are down, everyone will desert him.

undecided
At this juncture I’m numb to everything happening in Nigeria. I keep wondering how we managed to succumb to a looney’s words in 2015. It’s unfortunate the low IQ people make it farther than the high IQ people,I’m still trying to find a derivative for this kind of bizarre occurrence. I wish I was born in a saner society cry

His ego was bruised grin. To them if "Almighty" Bubu cannot use Twitter then everyone else has to suffer for it too. If Donald Trump was banned who the hell is Buhari? Nonsense!
You're only above the law here grin. Nobody recognises your position elsewhere grin. Continue exercising your dictatorship in your own country. Outside here you're powerless!!!

He used a VPN. He isn't a member of the satanic APC who banned it.

Just like they made people jobless after the ban on sale of sim cards.
