Aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has assured Nigerians that the Federal Government has no means to effect the suspension of Twitter operation in Nigeria.
In a tweet shared in reaction to the Federal Government’s decision, he said Twitter should ignore President Muhammad Buhari’s threat because his Government has no means of enforcing the suspension.
“The suspension of the activities of @Twitter in Nigeria by the @MBuhari administration should be ignored by @Jack. The Buhari government has no means of enforcing the suspension. Even officials of the Buhari regime are still on Twitter. #TwitterSuspendBuharisAccount #TableShaker”
Meanwhile, Nigerians on Twitter have called on Twitter to ban President Muhammad Buhari’s account on its platform as it did to former president Donald Trump.
Nigerian tweeps have commenced a campaign to pressure Twitter to ban the President’s account for issues relating to genocide and disregard for rule of law and human rights. The users are trending the hashtag #TwitterSuspendBuharisAccount.
