Twitter Suspension: US, UK, EU, Others Are Hypocrites - Lai Mohammed by dre11(m): 8:38pm On Jun 11
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has slammed the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and other countries that criticised the suspension of social media giant, Twitter.

Mohammed, who described the foreign countries as hypocrites, said their views were purely based on economic reasons and not because they loved Nigeria.

The minister said this on NTA’s ‘Good Morning Nigeria’ programme on Friday.

Mohammed said both the EU and the UK were already working on social media regulations and wondered why Nigeria was being accused of stifling free speech.

He added, “The EU has recommended the same thing and Britain only on Wednesday spoke about a law that would regulate the social media. This is why I say they are being hypocritical. Like I said, I don’t like commenting on issues that have to do with relations with Nigeria and other countries but clearly speaking, they are being less than honest.”

Mohammed said the Federal Government had constantly reached out to Twitter to bring down divisive comments like those of separatist leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who was fond of calling Nigeria a zoo.

He asked Nigerians not to be deceived by foreign missions condemning the suspension of Twitter.

Mohammed added, “We have seen so many foreign missions come up to condemn the action of Nigeria. Nigerians, please, make a distinction between countries that are trying to protect their economic and commercial interests from those countries that genuinely love you and talking about freedom of speech and don’t forget for one minute that it is because there is a country called Nigeria that there is freedom of speech.”

The minister maintained that the Federal Government did not suspend Twitter because it deleted a tweet by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), which many found repugnant.

On the issue of Nigerians losing money to the Twitter suspension, Mohammed downplayed the complaints, saying that the Nigerian government was not generating any money in tax from the social media platform.

He said Nigerians must note that it is only when there is peace that business can take place.

They are.

They all have social media regulations in their various countries.

Various anti hate speech, anti bully and anti violence ngos are all online in these countries flagging and regulating hate speech, Nigeria is regulating hate speeches online they are all shouting foul and so called freedom of expression.

In the United states especially, the anti defamation league will hunt you down and report all your social media profile, if you post hate speech online.

He’s probably right though. They didn’t ban Twitter because the company deleted the President’s tweet, they saw an opportunity to save his presidency from an imminent threat from June 12 protests, which could’ve been potentially bigger than ENDSARS.

Nigeria is a ticking time something... the tyrant escalated the nepotism and ethnic division. The fury will be ripe when he disappoints his accomplice in bourdillon though.

They were not hypocrites when other presidents before Buhari were in power... Only in Buhari's govt that EU UK & U.S became hypocrites all of a sudden.
Ofcourse they won't be hypocrites if they approve of Buhari's genocidal intentions & silence on Fulani terrorists' killings.
All these APC miscreants sef grin

Whether they support the ban or not, not foreign nation would determine our rules and decisions.

Buhari did the right thing. We stand with him. Only the enemies of Nigeria are hurt by this action

But your government is the demonic government...
Your pay master told Nigerians and governor's yesterday that he is not capable to lead Nigeria therefore state governors should not just watch him..

But my question to him is that how will the governors work when power has not been devolved to them..

Buhari himself knows the country is not working but as a confused man he has no solution..


Nigeria's problem is more than insecurity
No food
No job
Cost of living has become a disaster
Kidnapping
Hunger
Anger
Etc...


It is either this country is restructured or it breaks

Akuko

Father of all hypocrites calling others hypocrites.


I just hope when the US decides to reciprocate in same gesture we won't start running from pillar to post.

Remember the visa issue we had then?

Everytime na so we go de carry fight wey big pass us..

But many Nigerians lost jobs and contracts cos of the Twitter ban.

In a way he's right. The only thing is that in other Countries' bid to regulate social media, they didn't totally ban it cos they know how important it is. Both economically and human right wise.

Honestly am starting to like Lai.

But it's because am starting to dispise Nigerians for disrespecting their country. He is more a Patriots in my view than the many pseudo moralist parading.
