This is coming barely 48 hours after the suspension of the microblogging platform by the federal government which took effect on Saturday.

The support group of the ruling party which makes several posts on Twitter in support of President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling party, will only have been able to post the tweet by bypassing the ban using a virtual private network (VPN).

Recall that the minister of information, Lai Mohammed on Friday announced the indefinite suspension of Twitter.

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

Recall that the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha deactivated her account hours after the announcement of the ban was made public.

Hours after the announcement of the ban was made, Aisha, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, deactivated her account.

The suspension by the federal government came two days after a post by President Muhammadu Buhari on the 1967 civil war was deleted by the microblogging platform.

In a statement, the Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) said it has received directive from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to implement the suspension.

On Saturday, Nigerians woke up to find the microblogging platform inaccessible — proof that the implementation of the ban has commenced.

Many users of the platform had expressed concern over depleting sources of income as Twitter serves as a platform where many youths engage in business.

Several Nigerians have managed to bypass the government’s suspension and continue to use the platform using a virtual private network (VPN).

window.fbAsyncInit = function () { FB.init({ appId: '648141412443560', xfbml: true, version: 'v2.0' }); FB.Event.subscribe('comment.create', function (comment_data) { console.log(comment_data); update_comments_count(); }); FB.Event.subscribe('comment.remove', function (comment_data) { update_comments_count(); });

function update_comments_count(comment_data, comment_action) { jQuery.ajax({ type: 'GET', dataType: 'json', url: '', data: { action: 'clear_better_facebook_comments', post_id: '42804' }, success: function (data) { // todo sync comments count here! data have the counts }, error: function (i, b) { // todo } } ) }; };

appendFbScript(); }


})(); });
