Bad Legacy – Sani Tells Buhari After President Banned Twitter In Nigeria

Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has condemned the decision of the federal government to ban the operations of Twitter in Nigeria.

It will be recalled that the Federal Government on Friday suspended, indefinitely, the operations of microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.

Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement signed by his media aide Segun Adeyemi.

The minister cited the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.

He also directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to immediately commence the process of licensing all OTT and social media operations in Nigeria.

Reacting to the development, the outspoken former lawmaker simply wrote: “Twitter suspension; a bad legacy.”

He also wrote: “Just try to know where the Newspaper Vendors are, in case other platforms are banned.”

Meanwhile, Yoruba freedom fighter and activist, Sunday Igboho Adeyemo, has escaped an attack by armed gunmen at his Soka residence, Ibadan, in Oyo state.

Naija News reports that the attack was made known by Igboho’s spokespersons, Koiki Olayomi and Dapo Salami.

His aides revealed that the attackers stormed the house around 1:30 am and attempted to set it ablaze but they were resisted by the vigilant security aides of Igboho.

It was gathered that the gunmen and the guards of the activists exchanged gunfire.

Koiki warned that if the security agents did not leave his boss alone, it might be the beginning of the problem that the government was waiting for.
