Nigeria Dying, Loses Over N2billion Daily To Twitter Ban Amid Massive Unemployment, Economic Downturn

Nigeria loses over N2 billion to Twitter shutdown in the country on a daily basis, SaharaReporters has learnt.

This was disclosed by NetBlocks, which put the total cost impact of the shutdown at $6, 014, 390 and it naira equivalent at N2, 177, 089,051.

The NetBlocks Cost of Shutdown Tool (Cost) estimates the economic impact of an Internet disruption, mobile data blackout or app restriction using indicators from the World Bank, ITU, Eurostat and US. Census.

Meanwhile, the estimate is for one day.

Nigeria's unemployment rate increased to the second highest on a global list of countries monitored by Bloomberg recently.

The jobless rate in Nigeria rose to 33.3% in the three months through December, according to a report published by the National Bureau of Statistics on March 15.

It went up from 27.1% in the second quarter of 2020.

Experts have noted that a good number of Nigeria's youth population earn their livelihood through Twitter and that such incomes will be affected by ban. will be lost no thanks to the ban.

The Nigerian Government on Friday suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.

Therefore, Nigeria has lost over N4 billion since it banned Twitter on Friday.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement signed by his Special Assistant Segun Adeyemi, citing the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.

The Minister said the Federal Government had also directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately commence the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.

The development comes after Twitter deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet where he threatened to treat Nigerians “misbehaving” in “the language they understand”.

Buhari had in a tweet on Tuesday stated that his government will get “harder” on those hell-bent on destroying the country.

He said those wanting to destroy his government will receive the shock of their lives as his administration will do everything possible to ensure they fail.

The president said the sponsors and orchestrators of insecurity in the country are doing so because they want his administration to fail.

His tweet had read, ”I receive daily security reports on the attacks on critical national infrastructure, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.

“I received a briefing today from the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on the series of attacks on their facilities nationwide. These attacks are totally unacceptable, and we will not allow those behind them to achieve their evil objectives.

"I receive daily security reports on the attacks on critical national infrastructure, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We've given them enough time.

“I have assured INEC that we will make available to them everything they need to operate efficiently, so that no one will say we don’t want to go, or that we want a third term. There will be no excuse for failure. We will meet all of INEC’s demands.

“In the area of security, we have changed the Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General, and we are demanding that they rise fully to the challenges confronting us. There must be zero tolerance for all those bent on destroying our country by promoting crime and insurrection!

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”

The President's Twitter account was reported by Nigerians who understood the last part of the thread to mean a threat to kill the people of the South-East like the Nigerian government did in the Nigerian Civil War.

Many reminded Buhari of the consequences of the Nigerian Civil War which lasted from 1967 to 1970, stating that such must not be repeated.

Over 3 million Nigerians, mostly Igbo people, died during the war. Millions of people, especially children also starved to death.

Losing money as a country at this hour is painful, but security of the citizens come first.

But we should note that foreign investors won't come if there is war in the land.


THIS TOO SHALL PASS

God will continue to punish Nnamdi Cownu and his brainwashed swines wherever they are hiding.

They will never go scot free, for all the violence, deaths, murder and bloodshed they brought upon this nation.

All the evil politicians sponsoring these sets of animals hiding in the bush will all end miserably in life.
For all the atrocities they brought on this nation, their blood will be used to cleanse our darling country.

No be curse,
Na FACT.

We Rise!

Nobody needs to tell the fg to unban Twitter. Sense will soon reach them.

By the way if you ask most men the best way to get and keep a woman they will tell you it is woman. And it has been proven times without number that money can't get you women. What can get you a woman's love and loyalty is good sex. Nothing else will make a woman loyal to you apart from mind blowing sex. Have seen many handsome and rich men that their wives still cheats on them. I even have a married lady that keeps calling me to visit bcus of the good times we had last year before she married. The ability to give a woman mind blowing and shattering sex is not an ability that some few selected men are born with but it is something that could be learned.
May I introduce you to this wonderful book that teaches you how to take a woman to a whole level of ecstasy like she's never experienced before! Not even when she is self pleasing herself privately. This book will help you discover the powerful, closely guided secrets that you will not find in any other book...secrets that most men(and even women) don't even know exists. secrets that will give you the power to leave your partner satisfied beyond anything that she has experienced before.

I think he is not educated enough to rule. He is only good at leading cows nothing more. He needs to understand that his cows in his hometown and humans do not have the same way of life.

Let's not forget we had an option to reject Buhari but chose him out of 59 candidates.

We went ahead to say 4 + 4 . We need to bear him for the next 2 years.

Even though i know that Fulani doesn't trust anyone in Southern Nigeria to hand over power to. They will create more chaos so election doesn't hold. or he will hand over to the military by a well sketched coup.

My advice to him is to not travel outside anymore.

If he travels, he will not return anymore. if he returns its to come and die.

The west are waiting for him.
