Former Presidential candidate, Adamu Garba has asked that Twitter be banned from Nigerian internet space for deleting President Buhari’s tweet.
On Wednesday June 2nd Twitter deleted President Buhari’s tweet where he made reference to the 1966 Civil war.
Adamu who took to the micro-blogging platform to speak about Twitter’s decision to delete the president’s speech, stated that the social media giant should be banned from Nigeria’s internet space.
According to him, Twitter has no right to infuse into Nigeria’s local political affairs, hence the need to shut it down from the country’s internet space.
In his words,
“Twitter has no right to infuse into our local political affairs. It’s a company not a government. By removing our democratically elected President’s speech to the people of Nigeria, Twitter need to shutdown from Nigerian internet space. Twitter need to get out of Nigeria.”
This is coming after the Federal Government accused the American Social networking company, Twitter for alleged double standards on issues concerning Nigeria’s domestic issues.
According to the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, Twitter’s role on issues concerning Nigeria is suspicious and Nigeria would not be fooled.
