Don’t be distracted by only the Twitter ban smokescreen.
This is the real announcement. They aren’t waiting for the social media bill to be passed, they are acting on it. Free speech is being taken, we are now those countries we used to see in the news. https://t.co/e5pFnYrhEw
The biggest lesson from the #TwitterBan is that the government have the powers to ‘fix’ whatever they want; quickly too. They choose not to because they are wicked & don’t care. See how quickly they got Airtel, 9mobile & co to comply but are silent on issues of security etc. 💔
There is NO law in Nigeria today that would allow the prosecution of anyone simply for using Twitter in Nigeria.
The constitutional right to no punishment without law is absolute. This means that it cannot be restricted in any way.
The government is cooking something really nasty. Dark clouds gather in our country. The indefinite ban on Twitter the attempt to regulate social media is an ominous sign that peaceful agitators will be summarily executed #TwitterBan
Not sure I understand this. If Twitter can block Nigerians and their elected officials for violating its standards and policies, why can’t Nigeria and its elected officials block Twitter for violating their standards and policies? https://t.co/i4zAXJrWCd
Still surreal that Twitter has been banned in Nigeria, Africa’s largest democracy - where the vice président, information minister, justice minister, deputy senate president and speaker of lower house of parliament are all senior lawyers.
In 2021. https://t.co/B1axkKjL9T
Nigerians PLEASE don't download VPNs and move on. That's the mistake our parents made. They adapted and adjusted until oppression became the norm.
We need to let them know that we are not to be fvcked with.
Stop tweeting the names of the VPNs you’re using. IP addresses for common VPNs can be compiled and blacklisted by ISPs…you people should be smart for once, not everything you must put out on social media
Do you know how many campaigns people do on this street daily??
So Twitter is the same where some influencers get money to sustain themselves.
This government want to render people useless. #TwitterBan
In a year’s time, when we commission this project, the 1,000-acre land would have been transformed into a thriving agribusiness industrial hub with ranching and grazing fields, crop production and processing facilities, and a leisure and entertainment hub. https://t.co/GJ0lzLvIne
We have two tribes only in Nigeria: the politicians and the people. On both sides, you will find Christians/Muslims, Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, Fulani, Tiv, Ijaw and every other tribe either enjoying illicitly acquired public funds, or suffering together from insecurity and poverty.
Retweet to petition @Jack to permanently suspend @MBuhari’s account for threatening war on Nigeria’s SE. @Twitter suspended Trump’s account over the Capital storming.Why keep Buhari after he threatened to repeat a war that killed 1 million Biafrans?
We should not let the wounds that the previous generation inflicted and are still inflicting on the psyche of igbo man continue to fester.They can go to the grave with their hate. Mutual respect, understanding and tolerance should guid our interaction with all Nigerian#IamIgboToo
