US Mission In Nigeria Statement On Twitter Ban by iwaeda: 7:00pm On Jun 05
U.S. MISSION NIGERIA STATEMENT June 5, 2021

Nigeria's constitution provides for freedom of expression. The Government's recent #Twitterban undermines Nigerians' ability to exercise this fundamental freedom and sends a poor message to its citizens, investors and businesses.

Banning social media and curbing every citizen's ability to seek, receive, and impart information undermines fundamental freedoms. As President Biden has stated, our need for individual expression, open public conversation, and accountability has never been greater. The path to a more secure Nigeria lies in more, not less communication, alongside concerted efforts toward unity, peace, and prosperity.

Freedom of Speech.. grin grin But Buhari tweet was deleted?

Anyway, the Federal Govt. is no way hindering freedom of speech...We still have Facebook, Nairaland, Instagram, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc..

FG only banned one platform where irresponsible speech capable of wrecking havoc to the corporate existence Nigeria is permitted and that is Twitter...

God Bless Nigeria..

Council of foreign relations made a statement... but Buhari and his government chose to ignore .. instead of asking..

Yoruba media propaganda keep gingering encouraging the dullard to act out..

Many don’t even know what CFR stands for and who they’re ... very unfortunate for them and so fortunate for those who know.

Banning twitter is a loss on the government of Nigeria. We all know how Obama government brought Buhari in and gave him legitimacy.

I love Nigeria ... but so unfortunate is gone. Majority of Nigerians both online and offline are not informed.. the source whatever from hearsay and spread it..

Kanu has dealt a heavy one on Buhari government.. although not planned.. but the dullard jerked and got it.. now it’s all going down

Is Buhari still going to unleash violence on igbos dominated eastern Nigeria

Is he still going to crush like in 67’

Any attempt attempt will draw ire from international community

Meanwhile the unknown gunmen still remain unknown... soon IPOB will flood Twitter with pictures of humans he has killed in the last one month, steady their propaganda against the dullard with sentiments that’s all

The government has shown his autocratic self.. in a democratic country

Times are getting worst for this government... and his supporters are dumb.. so dumb without them knowing

Ignorance is spreading by day...

Now we all using vpn to tweet and most will go with USA.. and Europe.. that’s a real messy situation for the federal government

Freedom of speech in Nigeria is a scam....


We are not free to speak up....


You can't even call El'rufai by his name and not have DSS arrest you...

Name your dog Buhari and be jailed


Speak up against oppression and be proscribed...

I do hope someone somewhere around the corridor of power is reading this...and will tell all concerns to do the very right thing.

It's well

Every other things being mentioned (businesses and the rest) is not the concern of Nigerian government. The only thing that concerns Nigerian government is how to make sure no part breaks away. South is the soul of Nigeria, but the cabals don't want to admit.

We have a president that doesn't want people to tell him that he is failure but rather choose the path of tyranny.If he is performing well, the twitter e-warriors will die a natural death not an enforced one.

How a government thinks it can gag the freedom of expression of Nigerians baffle me.

If they tried it in other African countries, it probably won’t be an issue.

Nigerians are the most exposed people in the world, so it is expected that people will flare up

"Nooo, you people can't put mouth", so said Lie Mohammed.

They wanted power but not the responsibilities that come with power.
They want support and help of advanced countries, but can't maintain human right standards.
Power drunk misfits, principalities in human forms occupying public offices
