PRESS RELEASE!!!

NBC DIRECTS ALL BROADCASTING STATIONS IN NIGERIA TO SUSPEND TWITTER USAGE.


Consequent on the suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government over the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining the corporate existence of Nigeria, the National Broadcasting Commission directs all Broadcasting Stations in Nigeria to suspend the patronage of Twitter immediately.

In Compliance to the above directive, Broadcasting Stations are hereby advised to de- install twitter handles and desist from using twitter as a source (UGC) of information gathering for News and programmes Presentation especially Phone-in.

Section 2(1) rof the NBC Act entrusts the Commission with responsibility to ensure strict adherence to the national laws, rules and regulations.

Also, section 3.11.2 of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code provides that "the broadcaster shall ensure that law enforcement is upheld at all times in a matter depicting that law and order are socially superior to or more desirable than Crime and Anarchy.

Attention is also drawn to section 5.6.3 of The Code which requires Broadcasters to be mindful of materials that may cause disaffection, incite to panic or rift in the society in the use of a user generated Content (UGC).

Note that it will be unpatriotic for any broadcaster in Nigeria to continue to patronise the suspended Twitter as a source of its information therefore strict compiance is enjoined.

These people are finally mad.

It's either lai muhammed is stinging himself to oblivion or he's been pushed by illiterate cabals.

They think Nigeria is Saudi Arabia where they can be rigid and infringe on human rights.

Whatever it is, these idiots have gone mad.

They are projecting Nigeria in the image of North Korea. The thing is, soon, the whole Middlebelt and the South will fight back or cede away.

They can do whatever they want with their north.

How can you tell people how to live their lives?

1. Bloggers and online newspapers rely on Twitter for broadcast which in turn increase revenue through Google adsense and other ad serving companies.

2. Customers resolve bank issues, open bank accounts and all via Twitter.

3. Telcos resolve issues faster on Twitter.

4. Brand Influencers make money by advertising and review products and services on Twitter.

5. International NGOs rely on Twitter to disseminate information.

6. World Governments use Twitter to pass and receive messages.

These and many more are advantages of Twitter, but these hemp smokers are bent on destroying Nigeria.

See how they begged for ventilators using Twitter.

In fact any registered company still patronising the platform through any means, should be treated as an act of sabotage...and the license withdrawn immediately...

They think we are joking..

Is this real?

No regard to their followers on that platform to who they disseminate the news?

Why are they showing so much fury for an app, while keeping as silent as a graveyard over the hundreds of lives lost in just the span of a few days?

They can’t even keep a straight story, the spokesman for the government on channels went from blaming Twitter for Nigerias problems, to asking how they had the audacity to delete a presidents post. Which one is it?


The funny thing is, with all the killing and drama over Twitter, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria WILL STILL NOT COME OUT TO GIVE A LIVE INTERVIEW...

What should be trending now is #BuhariLiveInterview

1. If this country have a Good government knowing the solution to this Agitation here and there is just to allow Regional
government in all Regions of the federation. with regional
resource control we all would watch Biafra and Oduduwa agitation die a natural death and the needles bloodshed will end naturally but they'd rather plunge this country to total
arnachy and destroy it rather than do the right thing

2. in 2015 the major security problem we had was Boko Haram and guess what? BH problem made Jonathan shift the election. this time we Got Boko Haram, Bandits, herdsmen crisis, UGM crisis and this is happening all over the Nation. APC in 2023 would tell you if Jonathan can shift the election date why can't we seeing the security issues in the country. while Jonathan on the other hand was doing all he can to reduce Boko Haram, this government will do nothing and keep shifting the election date till y'all are tired. so if you're thinking of waiting till 2023 to make a change thr ur Votes, Think again and think clearly. if ur citing fear of Army now to hit the street #June 12th I wonder what you'll cite in 2023

#June 12 protest is for Nigerians with foresight
#This is a protest to rescue ourselves and our country from the hands of those bent on destroying it
#Last week alone over 300Nigerians were killed due to insecurity. how many would it be this week??
#Can you beat ur chest and say I'm sure to survive it this week??
#Are you living ur desired life?? why must Nigerians result to alternatives when you can hold those responsible and demand for what should be urs
#Nigerians this is the time to resist Tyranny, Oppression, hardship and insecurity
#June 12 should not meet you at home
#Pay the price now so you would not be forced to pay it later with or without ur wish

When terrorists fight back. This is supposed to be a democratic government but the lifeless vegetable and his cows who have the mark of the beast boldly written on their foreheads still believe they're running a military gonment.
